The Board of Directors of Terrafame Ltd is responsible for the organisation and integration of corporate responsibility management within Terrafame’s business operations. The Board approves the company’s operating principles.
Sustainability is more than just the small carbon footprint of battery chemicals for Terrafame. It refers extensively to environmental aspects, social responsibility for our personnel, consideration of occupational safety and the surrounding society, and good governance. Sustainability also means operating transparently in line with the principles of sustainable mining.
For our sustainability strategy, we have identified the most material sustainability themes and set concrete targets for the coming years.
We have compiled our key sustainability measures into our Sustainability Programme for 2020–2024 and its progress is monitored in the Sustainability Review, published annually.. The themes of the programme are linked to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the UN Global Compact initiative, which Terrafame joined in October 2020.
