Personnel and society related SDGs

Diversity in focus

We value diversity and foster fair treatment and equal opportunity in the recruitment, remuneration, development and advancement of employees, regardless of ethnicity, religion, political opinion, gender, age, national origin, language, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, or any other factor. Discrimination or unfair treatment is not tolerated, and we address it immediately.

Safety first

For Fortum, excellence in safety is the foundation of our business. We believe that all work injuries and EHS non-compliances are preventable when competence and the right attitude prevails, when potential risks are addressed, and when measures are taken to safeguard against them. Good occupational safety is a prerequisite for an efficient operation from the point of our employees and environment. Our safety targets are common and our goal is the continuous improvement of safety.

We have managed to achieve already a good safety level and our target is zero severe incidents. The Group’s new safety target is measured as Total Recordable Injury Frequency (TRIF), for own personnel and contractors, and our ambitious goal is to be below 1.0 by the end of 2025.

We support our employees' wellbeing and development

The energy sector is changing, and so is our company. We wish to support our employees in responding to the field's megatrends. Their wellbeing and work-life balance are important to us, as it is the people that enable what Fortum is today and in the future.

Our Energise Your Day wellbeing program encourages employees to maintain and develop their wellbeing and take care of themselves.

Our open leadership mode of operation supports the cooperation between units and targets to establish a work environment that promotes innovations, flexibility and agility.
