Towards more sustainable mining

Metso takes part in WWF’s global Earth Hour campaign by encouraging its employees to participate. The goal of Earth Hour is to spread awareness of climate change and to inspire people to take action. All around the world, companies and organizations as well as cities and individuals are joining forces to send a message to the decision-makers of the world by switching off the lights in succession from one time zone to the next. Metso invites individuals, teams and locations to celebrate their commitment in their own way.

Metso has successfully partnered with WWF Finland for over a decade (since 2002). WWF is one of Metso Group’s main partners in sponsorships in recent years. We have implemented various projects related to environmental protection with the WWF, including a new environmental efficiency project launched at the end of 2015. Metso continues to apply WWF Green Office practices to reduce energy consumption and waste at its Corporate Office in Helsinki, Finland.
