Our impact on societies

We can improve the lives of millions of people and address environmental issues through our client work all over the world.

Project work

Amounting to approximately 10,000 per year, client projects represent our main impact on social and environmental sustainability across the globe.

Our primary responsibility is to support clients in achieving their economic, environmental and social objectives. Our focus is on designing and managing the projects, supporting operations and consulting clients to the highest professional and ethical standards. This is conducted strictly within the framework of the clients’ final investment decisions and Pöyry’s contracts with them.

Our conduct

Our ethical standards for everyone who works for and with Pöyry are defined in the Pöyry Code of Conduct. We have zero tolerance for corruption, bribery, anti-competitive practices, discrimination and harassment of any kind at work. Pöyry applies the Code without exception in all parts of the world and requires the same standards from its sub-consultants and consortium partners. More information can be found in the Pöyry Code of Conduct, the Compliance pages and other policies.

The Pöyry people can report any issues or concerns about potential ethics and conduct violations to their line manager, the responsible legal counsel or the Chief Compliance Officer. In addition, employees can use the SpeakUp@Pöyry service that allows concerns to be raised anonymously 24/7 in the native language of the user. After the service was is established in 2012, all the reported SpeakUp cases in 2013-2017 have been resolved and no human rights violations were reported through the service.

Community involvement

We strive to act responsibly and engage in an open dialogue within the communities we are present. 

Students are a particularly important for Pöyry and its future success. In early 2018, Pöyry invited technology and business students from Aalto University, Finland, to discuss on global megatrends and their impact on societies and people’s lives. The students were also invited to a competition on the business opportunities that megatrends trigger. The winner will get to work as ‘CEO for a Day’, shadowing the CEO and CFO of Pöyry later in the spring.

Pöyry actively contributes to local and international communities and stakeholder networks through numerous initiatives, organisations and interest groups relevant to its businesses, such as 

In project work, we apply our internal guidelines and legally binding procedures. In addition, we have the tools to evaluate the clients' project related risks in social responsibility, as well as to enhance local stakeholder dialogue.
