Customers and investors place high demands and expectations regarding our work on sustainability, and talents want to work in companies that contribute to society. Sustainability is good for business. Increasing efficiency, reducing fuel consumption, less sick leaves and eliminating work-related accidents are ways of improving profitability.
Eltel’s Sustainability plan for 2018–2020 is divided into five areas: health and safety, people and society, environment, supply chain and business ethics. These are our most material areas.
In order to improve the process for tracking and following up on our most important areas, we completed the implementation of our safety and quality reporting system this year. The system is an IT tool that measures and follows up our performance in environment, health and safety and quality. We have already seen that the system works. During 2020 we will work on increasing the number of reports and improving the quality of the reports to be able to take action quickly.
