Sustainability, ethics,
transparency

Responsible partner

At Alma Media, our goal is to conduct our business transparently and in an environmentally,
socially and economically sustainable manner.

We adhere to our Code of Conduct (PDF) in our operations. We have zero tolerance for corruption and
bribery and we openly report our tax footprint.

To reduce the environmental impacts of our operations, we have set ourselves long-term emission targets that are
aligned with global goals. Our climate actions also extend to our major subcontractors whom we encourage
to consider their own carbon footprint.

Lower CO2 emissions through lighting

New, energy efficient led lamps controlled by a smart system replaced the old fluorescent lights in the extensive lighting renovation project, completed in Alma Media's Tampere office.

Reducing CO2 emissions

Alma Media is one of the leading Finnish companies which have already set their science based carbon dioxide emission reductions targets.

Getting energy-hungry properties under control

Alma Media signed an energy efficiency agreement concerning its properties in 2017. The agreement is part of a national energy efficiency program for years 2017-2025.

A responsible taxpayer

Alma Media openly presents its tax footprint in its sustainability reports.

Waste transport optimised at the printing press

Reorganising waste transports in Alma Media’s printing arm Alma Manu reduced the need for waste transportation by 13 per cent and saved money.

Green decisions

Our goal is to reduce the CO2 emissions generated by the energy consumption of our real estate and our company cars by 21%
by the mid-2020s, and to reduce indirect CO2 emissions (such as those caused by printing subcontracting)
by 10% by 2023. (Comparison year: 2016).

In Finland, we intend to improve the energy efficiency of our real estate by 5% by 2020, discontinue the use of electric
power that generates CO2 emissions and reduce the material loss generated during magazine and newspaper printing
annually by 2% until 2025.
