Stakeholders and materiality

At Pöyry, we look at sustainability from two perspectives: our own operations, as well as our project work and interface with clients. Amounting to 10,000 per year, the client projects are at the very core of Pöyry's impact on societies around the globe.

Stakeholder expectations

Pöyry has presence across the globe in around 40 countries, where we operate in a wide variety of industry sectors. The stakeholder expectations are numerous. Our core stakeholders from a corporate responsibility perspective include clients, shareholders and employees. Additional key stakeholders consist of potential employees, the wider investor community, other business partners, governmental bodies, the civil society, media, trade associations and competitors.

Pöyry has since strengthened these areas further. In addition, the regular ‘Quick Pulse’ employee surveys provide important feedback on leadership and business. We also have dedicated internal channels for direct dialogue between our people and management. Read more about our employee engagement here
