Valmet has defined new action plans for its sustainability agenda for 2016-2018.
The action plans include detailed actions and targets for each sustainability focus area. The new action plans were defined based on an extensive agenda review conducted in early 2016.
Valmet defined the sustainability agenda initially in early 2014, and has systematically worked to implement the actions set for each of its focus areas. The agenda is called Sustainability360º and it takes a comprehensive approach to sustainability in our operations. The agenda focuses on five core areas: sustainable supply chain; health, safety and environment; people and performance; sustainable solutions, and corporate citizenship.
Anu Salonsaari-Posti about the action plans
“Our systematic execution of the previous action plans has led to many concrete results. We have for instance established Valmet-wide processes for managing the sustainability of our supply chain, improved occupational safety year by year and realized a significant increase in employee engagement. On top of this, Valmet has been recognized as one of the world’s sustainability leaders in Dow Jones Sustainability Index. As we have now reached many of our current targets, this was a natural phase to review the agenda and define actions for the next three years,” says Anu Salonsaari-Posti, SVP, Marketing, Communications and Sustainability at Valmet.
