Tieto’s Corporate Responsibility Report 2015 has been published
Tieto’s seventh corporate responsibility (CR) report based on the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) framework has been published. This report presents Tieto’s CR performance in 2015, and the work towards the long-term CR objectives: minimize environmental impact, be an ethical forerunner in society, and create value for all stakeholders.
One of the highlights in 2015 is the continued CO2 emission reductions. Tieto’s reported CO2 emissions decreased by 3% in 2015 to 31 ktons CO2. The company’s climate initiative focuses on how to increase energy efficiency in offices and data centres, and how to reduce business travel.
“I’m very pleased to see the continued decrease in CO2 emissions,” says Christer Mattsson, Head of Corporate Responsibility at Tieto. “We also helped to reduce our customers’ CO2 emissions through our services. Based on our estimates of the environmental impacts from our digital transaction services, customer CO2 emission decreased by 223 ktons in 2015 with these services alone. We strongly believe in the positive sustainability impacts from IT, and are committed to continuing exploring this area.”
During the year, Tieto also increased the coverage of its Environmental Management System (EMS) to 95% of employees globally. With this, the company reached its target to have all sites with more than fifty employees certified with the ISO 14001 environmental standard. This creates a solid platform for further improving the environmental performance going forward.
Tieto actively works to implement its ethical business practices throughout business operations and supply chain. By the end of 2015, more than 70% of Tieto’s employees had passed the company’s interactive Code of Conduct and Anti-corruption e-learning course. The number of suppliers accepting Tieto’s Supplier Code of Conduct Rule represents 81% of total spend.
Tieto’s Corporate Responsibility Report 2015 is prepared in accordance with the core option of the GRI G4 Reporting Guidelines. The report is externally assured in accordance with the International Standard on Assurance Engagements (ISAE) 3000 (Revised) “Assurance Engagements Other than Audits or Reviews of Historical Financial Information”. Tieto’s CR report also represents the company’s annual Communication on Progress in accordance with United Nations Global Compact (GC) requirements, qualifying for the GC Advanced level.
