Goals and commitments

At Tikkurila, sustainability issues and corresponding actions have been integrated into our Group Strategy and Strategy Execution Roadmap. We have defined concrete sustainability promises for year 2021 and forthcoming years 2022–2023. These promises guide our sustainability projects and support the development of our business from a sustainability perspective and are targeted according to key value chain phases:

  • Responsible sourcing 
  • Eco-efficient production 
  • Sustainable products 

Our sourcing sustainability focuses on supplier CSR/sustainability risk management, packaging, and using renewable energy. Operational sustainability focuses on work health and safety, strives to reduce production waste, and improve eco-efficiency (energy, water, and other input use of production). The main focus of our product sustainability is the development of safe and more environmentally-friendly products that comply with established sustainability standards and guidelines. 

Tikkurila has also committed to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, from which it has selected the following four focus areas: 

  • Decent work and economic growth 
  • Sustainable cities and communities 
  • Responsible consumption and production 
  • Climate action
