For Fortum, economic responsibility means competitiveness, performance excellence and market-driven production, which create long-term value for our stakeholders and enable profitable growth. We manage our supply chain in a responsible manner. Fortum aims for performance excellence through continuous development of our operational efficiency and our core processes. A company that is financially strong is able to shoulder its responsibility for the environment, take care of its personnel, meet the needs of its customers and support the development of the entire society.
Fortum measures its financial performance by monitoring the return on capital employed and the capital structure. We report regularly on the direct and indirect financial impacts on our most important stakeholder groups. Fortum also uses the applicable Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) indicators to measure economic responsibility. Different sustainability indexes and our own One Fortum stakeholder survey also measure the development and continuous improvement of our operational responsibility.
