Elisa Oyj, press release 12 April 2018
Finnish consumers evaluate Elisa as the most responsible company in its field in the Sustainable Brand Index 2018 study. For the sixth time, Sustainable Brand Index listed Finland’s most responsible companies on the basis of the UN Global Compact’s principles about responsibility.
The extensive quantitative and qualitative study was conducted in Finland and in other Nordic countries between November 2017 and March 2018. The study looked at 928 brands, and 35,000 interviews were conducted. In Finland, 9,600 consumers were interviewed.
Elisa was in 51st place from 164 Finnish brands, and it was the leading company in its field. Elisa improved its score to 62 per cent from last year. Elisa has ranked highly in several other sustainability indexes and studies too.
“Elisa’s long-term work towards responsibility in different areas is the reason for the good score. For instance, Elisa pays over 70 per cent of the corporate taxes paid by teleoperators in Finland. All the electricity we use in Finland is renewable, and for two years, we have received high rankings in the Great Place to Work programme, which focuses on working life. In addition, we have important social projects that we have supported either financially or by doing voluntary work. Examples could be ShedHelsinki, Word and Aseman lapset with our Stay connected project”, says Minna Kröger, corporate responsibility director at Elisa.
The Sustainable Brand Index™ is the Nordics’ largest independent study focusing on sustainability. The study, based on approximately 35,000 interviews with consumers, maps out consumers’ opinions about sustainable companies. The ranking list and additional information about the study are available at www.sb-insight.com
