Itella 2012


Focal areas of corporate responsibility

Our corporate responsibility reporting is based on the guidelines of the Global Reporting Initiative. We apply the guidelines in accordance with Application Level B+. The past year, 2012, was the first one during which we commissioned verification of the environmental responsibility data to be published for the year and an audit of the GRI level. The GRI level has been audited since 2010. The verification and audit were carried out by PricewaterhouseCoopers Oy (PwC). The GRI table and PwC's verification are available here. The data is reported on an annual basis, and the reporting period is January 1 – December 31.

In line with the GRI guidelines, our corporate responsibility reporting focuses on issues relevant to our operations and stakeholders. In 2010, we carried out an extensive survey among our stakeholders, on the basis of which we determined the issues that were to be reported. This materiality determination was updated in the autumn of 2012 in the form of an internal survey. The survey's objective was to evaluate the importance of various issues in terms of both Itella's success as well as its stakeholders. The survey's results are shown in the table below. The external survey conducted among stakeholders will be carried out and updated on the basis of the results of the internal survey during 2013.
