Responsibly, every day

Sustainability is an integral part of our work. That is why it shows in everything we do. We use indicators to track our performance.

Ilmarinen's responsibility is exhibited in how we take care of a key component of Finnish social security: pension cover. The earnings-related pension directly impacts the well-being of Finns. We also promote good daily workplace practices. We invest pension assets so that the return on them also secures the pensions of future generations. In addition, we support business in Finland by being a major and active owner of Finnish companies.

Our whole business is based on trust. Trust, on the other hand, is based on responsible action.

Take a look at Ilmarinen's Sustainability Report 2017 (pdf).
