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.

Waste transport optimised at the printing press

Alma Media’s printing arm Alma Manu began to closely review its waste transport activities in 2016.

The Tampere-based printing press joined forces with its waste transport subcontractor to reorganise waste transport. 

Increasing the weight of the loads transported enabled the printing press to reduce the number of transports of waste, leading to a decrease of approximately 456 tonnes of CO2 equivalent in its carbon dioxide emissions. The lower number of transports of waste also meant thousands of euros in savings for the printing press.

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.
