Management and targets

Corporate responsibility aspects are regularly discussed and approved in the Elisa Executive Board and the Board’s audit committee. Chief Financial Officer, Director of Human Resources and Director of administration account for economic, social and environmental topics in the executive board of Elisa Corporation.

It is important for us that we provide added value to our customers and society, and conduct ourselves responsibly, ethically and lawfully in all situations. A common Code of Conduct promotes sustainable, ethical and successful business and deepens our stakeholders’ trust in us.

We are committed to the principles of the UN Global Compact. In addition to the Global Compact, Elisa’s own Code of Conduct guides the work of each Elisa employee. Together with Elisa’s information security, anti-corruption, human rights and contract agreement principles they form a set of guidelines that we use to ensure ethical business, and a secure, anti-bribery and equal corporate culture.

Elisa has signed the following external initiatives:

  • • UN Global Compact
  • • UN Women empowerment principles (WEP)
  • • Corporate Responsibility Charter of the European Telecommunications Network Operators Association (ETNO)
  • • Diversity Charter of the FIBS Corporate Responsibility Network
  • • European Framework for Safer Mobile Use initiative of the European GSM Association
  • • Commitment 2050
  • • Energy Efficiency Agreement
  • • Science Based Targets

Sustainability goals (UN Global Compact)

The UN member states have agreed on new sustainability goals that will guide the promotion of sustainable development until 2030. There is still long way to go before we reach these goals. According to studies, solving the social, financial and environmental challenges requires broad utilisation of innovative digital solutions. Thus the ICT sector will have a key role in achieving these ambitious goals by the set deadline. To meet them, we need contributions from all in the ICT industry.

We have identified and prioritised our most important sustainability goals – the ones that we can influence the most either through our own actions (footprint) or through services developed for our customers and other stakeholders (handprint).
