Sustainability program

Sitowise published its first sustainability program in 2019. It defined Sitowise’s ambition to be the most responsible partner in developing a prosperous living environment, which was also later adopted as the company’s vision. The sustainability program, and particularly Sitowise’s vision, have guided the company’s operations during the previous three years, fueled its internal sustainability debates and drawn increasing attention to the opportunities – and requirements – of sustainable development.

In the recent years, Sitowise has grown considerably and expanded its operations to Sweden, and it has also been listed on the Helsinki Stock Exchange. At the same time, society’s expectations for monitoring and measuring sustainability work have risen. Legislation is in a constant change and demands for corporate sustainability are increasing.

Goals in short

In this new sustainability program for 2025, we are still guided by our vision to be the industry’s most responsible partner in developing a prosperous living environment. For the sustainability program, we set ourselves four main goals:

  • We are carbon neutral in 2025 
  • We are the most equal workplace with best employee wellbeing in the industry 
  • We aim for sustainable economic growth
  • We actively contribute to make our industry more sustainable

We are carbon neutral in 2025

Many stakeholders such as shareholders, partners, and clients expect and appreciate ambitious climate actions and sustainability. Sitowise must be able to meet these expectations. Mitigating climate change and continuously reducing our carbon footprint are already part of our sustainability work.

We will reach this goal with following actions:

  • We will continuously reduce our own emissions towards carbon neutrality by 2025
  • We will compensate for all the CO2 emissions caused our own operations at the latest in 2025

We are the most equal workplace with best employee wellbeing in the industry

In a specialist company like Sitowise, social responsibility tends to focus on ensuring and improving the well-being of employees. We want to show that we are strongly committed to improving the wellbeing and equality of our employees, therefore this is one of the main goals in our sustainability program.

Materiality assessment

Materiality analysis crystallizes sustainability work

To support the update of the sustainability program, Sitowise conducted a materiality analysis that identified the most crucial ESG aspects of sustainability regarding Sitowise’s operations and the related level of ambition. The materiality analysis examined the trends affecting our business, made comparisons to the UN’s Sustainable Development Agenda, and took the views of our employees and clients into account.
