Our material sustainability focus
Pöyry conducted a stakeholder survey in 2011 with 230 stakeholders in order to identify the relevant topics for Pöyry’s corporate responsibility. The survey result emphasised our people’s appreciation for responsibility in Pöyry’s own operations, whereas the external respondents expect us to focus on sustainability in our project operations.
The results highlighted some of the themes that are topical for Pöyry’s operations:
- Responsible business
- Employer responsibility
- Environmental awareness in own operations
- Sustainability in project work
We are currently reviewing these themes as we renew our overall CR approach.
