Societal engagements

We believe that we can create lasting value by engaging with partners that develop societies and at the same time support our business strategy.

Creating impact together

We want to be an active corporate citizen in the societies where we operate. We believe that we can create lasting value by engaging with partners that develop societies and at the same time support our business strategy.

We believe that the future lies in the youth of today and therefore we want to focus on investing in young people and their education. In addition, we continue to focus on improving digital equality in society, strengthening digital competencies and skills among disadvantaged groups.

Our Sustainability Steering Group, authorized by the Board of Directors, annually reviews our societal engagements. Our selection of partners is based on community-need assessments made in co-operation with local business operations. Our societal engagements give our employees the opportunity to take part in these projects and do good for the society around us.
