Nokia is working hard to create value for people and our planet. We know that our technology can be part of the solution for many global challenges. To verify the progress we are making, we issue yearly reports covering the key ethical, socio-economic and environmental issues most relevant to our business and our stakeholders.
This summary of the Nokia People & Planet Report 2013 covers our approach to sustainability and our focus areas, and reports our progress against the targets we had set for ourselves. Further details can be found in the full report.
Specific information related to the infrastructure business is available in the Nokia Networks sustainability report.
Integrating and indexing our reports
Nokia also incorporates corporate responsibility and sustainability reporting into our official annual report that is filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission in the United States. Known as Form 20-F, this report undergoes a stringent verification and auditing process.
To help ensure compatibility with other organizations, Nokia uses the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) guidelines. Our selected key sustainability indicators have been assured by an independent third party, PricewaterhouseCoopers Oy (Nokia’s statutory auditor).
United Nations Global Compact
Nokia is committed to the principles of the United Nations Global Compact and has been a signatory and member since The Global Compact’s inception.Today, we are an active member of the Global Compact signatories, and we participate in the Nordic network.
We have published online corporate responsibility reports since 2003. In our reporting, we are committed to expanding our transparency and our coverage and to reviewing progress in our activities and programs that support the ten principles of the Global Compact in the area of human rights, labor standards, the environment, and working against corruption.
