Sustainability

With sustainability playing an essential role in all Lehtipiste business operations, the environment and sustainable development are taken into account in all our decision-making.

Sustainability at Lehtipiste

 

Corporate responsibility plays an essential role in all Lehtipiste business operations. We take the environment and sustainable development into consideration in all our decision-making. In terms of our own operations, our goal is to reach carbon neutrality by 2030.

To achieve our goals, we have prepared a concrete and frequently updated roadmap to carbon neutrality. Transport is the single largest contributor to our carbon footprint, and this is why we work actively to reduce the impact of our transport operations.

Personnel wellbeing is an essential part of our corporate responsibility efforts. Listening to our employees, taking care of occupational safety, our personnel benefits, and comfortable working environment are essential to creating and maintaining personnel wellbeing.

Our steadfast goal is to conduct profitable business while also investing in growth. This is how we secure our ability to provide livelihoods in the future.

Our operations are ethically sustainable, and this is why we have prepared shared ethical guidelines that apply to us all. With the help of a whistleblowing channel¬†available at our owner company Tradeka’s website, you can provide feedback on conduct at Lehtipiste or at any of its subsidiaries that you think might violate Lehtipiste’s ethical principles.

We annually report our corporate responsibility goals and achievements in our owner company Tradeka’s comprehensive corporate responsibility report (in Finnish). Likewise, we require measurable corporate responsibility from our partners.
