Sustainability is an integral part of our business and management. We report regularly to our owner and to our stakeholders on progress made towards the objectives set in our sustainability Programme. The program covers comprehensively economic, social and environmental aspects.
Our sustainability themes are:
Sustainable corporate citizenship
Safety and security of supply
Towards carbon neutrality
Code of conduct
Our operations are guided by ethical principles (Code of conduct) that all our employees are required to follow.
Gasgrid Finland is a reliable partner
Reliability is visible to our customers and other stakeholders as high security of supply and safe operations. We operate in a manner that is equal, open and impartial towards all our stakeholders.
Gasgrid Finland respects human rights
We respect human rights in all our activities. We do not accept any use of forced labour, grey labour or child labour in any circumstances. We also have a zero-tolerance policy on corruption and bribery and our employees must not in any circumstances receive or offer bribes beyond hospitality. Any conflicts of interest must be reported immediately to the company’s management or Board of Directors.
Gasgrid Finland addresses any irregularities or other problems
Our ethical principles guide our day-to-day decision-making and the way we solve any other problems.

All cases are investigated and addressed in an appropriate manner.
Society’s Commitment to Sustainable Development is a key instrument for implementing the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Society’s Commitment to Sustainable Development is a shared long-term vision of the Finland we want to have in the future. The Commitment is founded on a common understanding of the compelling need for change.
Society’s Commitment includes mutually agreed-upon objectives and practices that are required to secure a good life now and for the future generations. Society’s Commitment is the interpretation of the Finnish National Commission on Sustainable Development on what sustainable development means.
All the commitments are made available to the public in the online service sitoumus2050.fi.
