Our approach to sustainability

Tieto is convinced that the long-term success of the company requires a business model that takes into account corporate responsibility (CR) and sustainability as a natural part of the daily business operations, including services and solutions provided to customers.

Tieto supports the leading global sustainability principles and complies with the requirements of many non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and industry standards. These multi-stakeholder initiatives guide us in our daily work.

  • We have been a signatory of the UN Global Compact principles for environmental care, human rights, worker's rights and anti-corruption since 2010.

  • We comply with the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises.

  • We have engaged with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) since 2011 (Organizational Stakeholder 2011-2015, Gold Community Member 2016). Every year, we report non-financial information (externally assured) in accordance with the core option of the GRI G4 Reporting Guidelines.

As our new corporate purpose - Creating value for life - indicates, Tieto aims to play an active role in sustainable development for society, business and people.

  • We are a member of FIBS non-profit corporate responsibility network in Finland.
