Our focus areas

Our focus areas

Our corporate responsibility focus areas and targets have been adjusted based on Kemira’s sharpened strategy presented in April 2013 and on the stakeholder survey results in autumn 2013. The results of the stakeholder survey indicated growing importance of business ethics and compliance, product stewardship, responsibility in the supply chain as well as transparency of our operations to our stakeholders. To address this, we have singled out Responsible business practices as its own focus area. Otherwise the corporate responsibility focus areas identified earlier remain valid.

New and revised targets within our focus areas include establishing the Kemira Compliance program, climate change target, as well as employee engagement target based on the Voices@Kemira survey results.

The revised corporate responsibility targets were accepted by Kemira’s Management Board in January 2014. Kemira's performance against targets in 2013 can be found in the section Key activities in 2013.
