Our sustainability strategy creates value for stakeholders through sustainable business.

Sustainability program

The core of Valmet Automotive’s sustainability work consists of building a systematic sustainability strategy and management, reducing environmental impact and improving work safety. To put our sustainability into action, we launched a company-wide True Green Initiative.  It is a practical guide which aims to integrate green thinking and actions into our organizational culture at all levels. True Green Initiative consists of six work streams, and each stream contains a wide range of concrete actions that will pave the way towards a sustainable and resilient future at Valmet Automotive.


Carbon NEUTRAL operationsfrom the beginning of 2022

CO2 neutrality is currently in the agenda of every major vehicle manufacturer and is shaping the entire automotive industry. By persistent and systematic work, we have successfully cut our CO2 emissions from our own operations by by 90% from 2019 and achieved carbon neutrality from the beginning of 2022.

The Valmet Automotive Group is carbon neutral according to the PAS 2060 certificate and is verified by an external party, DNV.

Carbon Neutrality PAS 2060


Valmet Automotive’s carbon neutrality target covers emissions from purchased energy and our own operations. Emissions from our own operations are mainly generated by the used energy, e.g., heating and electricity, so we promote the  CO2 neutrality target primarily by reducing energy consumption and by replacing existing sources of energy with renewable alternatives.

In addition to our own operations, we also aim to reduce emissions in our supply chain in the future. Our suppliers are obliged to commit to reducing CO2 emissions as per the Supplier Code of Conduct.


As players in the Automotive industry we all know that change, speed and flexibility are challenges we face every day. Therefore, it is important for us to have a solid base to stand on, with strong pillars to lean on. At the same time Valmet Automotive is becoming a global company more and more, with a heart in Finland. Because we operate in several countries today, it is more essential than ever to define the legal guidelines and standards for ethical behavior that support all associates and stakeholders of Valmet Automotive in their decision-making on a daily basis. Reputation, trust and integrity are three strong pillars that the success of Valmet Automotive has been based on for more than 50 years.
