Managing sustainability inside Fortum
Our sustainability management is based on the company’s values, the Code of Conduct, the Supplier Code of Conduct the Sustainability Policy and other policies and their specific instructions as defined at the Group level. Needless to say, we comply with laws and regulations.
Management structures for sustainable business practices
We uphold a high level of environmental and safety management in all our business activities. 99.8% of Fortum’s electricity and heat production operations are ISO 14001 certified and 98.4% were OHSAS 18001 certified.
Sustainability is an integral part of Fortum’s strategy and the highest decision-making authority in these issues is with the Board of Directors. The Fortum Executive Management decides on the sustainability approach and the Group-level sustainability targets that guide our annual planning. The targets are ultimately approved by Fortum’s Board of Directors.
Fortum’s line management is responsible for the implementation of policies and instruction and for day-to-day sustainability management, and the realisation of the safety targets is a part of Fortum’s incentive system.
Our commitment to sustainability
Fortum is a participant of the UN Global Compact initiative and the UN Caring for Climate initiative. Fortum respects and supports the International Bill of Human Rights, the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, and the core conventions of the International Labour Organisation (ILO). Additionally, Fortum recognises in its operations the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, the statutes of the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, the International Chamber of Commerce’s anti-bribery and anti-corruption guidelines, and the Bettercoal initiative’s Code on responsible coal mining.
