Elisa Corporation, press release, 29 August 2016
Elisa Corporation has been included in the globally recognised FTSE4Good Index. The index is designed to measure the performance of companies that meet the globally acknowledged corporate standards of responsibility in terms of environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices.
“As a Finnish company expanding into the global market, it is important for us to act in a responsible, ethical and legal way in all situations. Being included in the respected FTSE4Good Index is a great honour, and it proves that our long-term work towards responsibility has taken us in the right direction and is now producing results. It is good to continue developing our operating models from here,” says Minna Kröger, corporate responsibility director at Elisa.
The FTSE4GoodIndex is created by FTSE Russell, part of London Stock Exchange Group, one of the world’s leading exchange operators and index provider. The FTSE4Good Index series, introduced in 2001, is a comparison tool for responsible investors. The criteria for being included in the index have been designed to help investors to evaluate companies’ ESG practices. The criteria focus on corporate social responsibility, human rights, environmental practices, social and stakeholder relations, and combating corruption.
Elisa’s inclusion in the index was confirmed following the FTSE4Good Policy Committee's review in June 2016. Elisa also reports its emissions in the annual CDP survey and is committed to operating according to the principles of the UN Global Compact.
