Responsible growth for the battery value chain
Basis of our work
The Finnish government has given our company an important mandate: to responsibly maximise the value of minerals extracted in Finland. Accordingly, our investments are geared towards societal impacts, contributing to sustainable development of the battery value chain, and taking responsibility for the environment and climate.
Our social responsibility manual is the ISO 26000 standard, which requires compliance with the rule of law, ethical behaviour, and corporate accountability. The guideline is based on a comprehensive approach in which the core is the organisational governance.
This is how we operate
We encourage open conversation
As a state-owned company, we are governed by the Government Resolution on State Ownership Policy. The decision-in-principle of the present government addresses a number of aspects of sustainability, such as the environment and nature, human rights, people matters, combating corruption, risk management, and tax matters.
Within our company, we maintain a corporate culture based on open conversation, because in our view, this is conducive to sustainability. We encourage our employees to speak up about anything that concerns them, to their supervisor, to the occupational safety and health representative or to an HR representative, in confidence if necessary. Matters of ethical concern may also be raised through the whistleblowing channel accessible at the bottom of this web site.
