Sustainability program steers our efforts

We have formulated Gasum’s Sustainability program to promote sustainability and guide our responsibility work. The program applies to the company in all operating countries. The program addresses the most material social, environmental, and economic aspects of Gasum’s responsibility: safety and security, climate, circular economy, access to cleaner energy, people, and responsible business.

We track our achievements, and regularly report on performance. The annual Sustainability report addresses our progress with our Sustainability program and towards the targets set.

Materiality - Themes with greatest impact

The responsibility focus areas are based on our own and our stakeholder’s views of the significance of the impacts of our operations on the company and the society. Materiality analysis with stakeholder dialogue is conducted regularly to ensure that we focus on the most important sustainability topics. Internal review and update is done annually.
