Our sustainability agenda was updated during 2018. The agenda consists of Metso’s most material sustainability topics based on a thorough materiality analysis. The materiality analysis was developed based on stakeholder meetings and interviews, internal discussions with various Metso functions and a workshop with Metso Executive Team.
Metso’s sustainability agenda is divided into two main focus areas: responsible and trusted partner, and sustainable productivity with selected topics. Each of the focus areas consist of the most material topics, including actions and goals with respective KPIs. Goal-setting, particularly for the sustainable productivity category will continue during 2019.
