Managing Sustainability

We promote sustainable development and take environmental, financial and social aspects into account in our daily operations, as well as in our strategic business development and in strengthening our market position. In addition to our strategy and the long-term targets approved by our Board of Directors, our business operations are steered by our customers’ expectations and the market trends. In everything we do, we aim to comply with the highest ethical standards, legislation, company values and code of conduct.

Tikkurila's corporate responsibility management relies on its organisational structure and experts. Our sustainability programme is organised by value chain into teams, which meet monthly or quarterly. The three teams managing sustainable development – Sourcing, Operations, and Products & Services – are supported by other operations when necessary. Roles and responsibilities have been assigned to some 30 core people in Tikkurila's sustainability network.
