Corporate responsibility within Olvi Group
Sustainable development is part of our strategy and is reflected in our day-to-day operations. We promote responsible and sustainable business operations throughout our value chain, from the procurement of raw materials to the environmental footprints of our products and well-being at work. We also help our partners, customers and consumers make responsible choices.
Olvi and its subsidiaries have been in business for centuries – and responsible practices have always been a part of our operations. Responsibility is one of our values and a natural part of the Group’s day-to-day operations.
We determined our key focus areas of responsibility, considering the megatrends and stakeholder expectations that affect our operations. Olvi Group’s corporate responsibility programme’s four focus areas are: responsible value chain, the best place to work, creating value for stakeholders and consumer communications. In addition to these, ethical way of operation is an integral part of our Group and operations.
Group’s companies Servaali and Helsinki Distilling Company were integrated into Group’s corporate responsibility programme in 2020. We are also committed to promoting the UN Sustainable Development Goals through our corporate responsibility programme. We have combined our current targets with the UN main goals and sub-goals for sustainable development. Our materiality analysis was updated in 2020.
