Sustainability has always been part of our work at the Finnish Transport Agency. The idea for a voluntary sustainability report arose from a need to increase the amount of information available about the impact of the Finnish Transport Agency’s activities and describe the significant role it plays in society. The report seeks to further increase the openness and transparency of the Finnish Transport Agency’s activities and tell people about our commitment to sustainable operations.
Responsibility plays a role in every decision
Sustainability is part of everyone’s daily work at the Finnish Transport Agency, and runs through the agency’s entire organisation and strategy. Every business area is, under the leadership of its Director General, responsible for the tasks laid down in its order of proceedings. The Department of Communications and Sustainability is in charge of coordination, reporting and communications, led by the Director, Communications and Sustainability. Our sustainability work and reporting follows principles of continual improvement.
Working in the best interests of society is an important principle for us.
The Finnish Transport Agency has collated its sustainability themes, objectives and measures for everyone to assess. The resulting report complies with Global Reporting Initiative (G4) guidelines.
The Finnish Transport Agency’s Sustainability Report is published once a year. The first sustainability report, covering 2015, was published on 12 April 2016.
