Sustainability policy (document)
Sustainability work in 2011
Coor has far-reaching accountability for its own operations and their impact on wider society and the environment, and on its customers' activities. Coor's sustainability work is conducted within financial/business ethics, social and environmental segments. By working actively and on a structured basis on various matters (indicators) in the three segments, Coor contributes to stable and sustainable progress over time. The indicators are decided on a yearly basis.
Business care - for long-term financial sustainability
We take responsibility for stable and profitable progress over time. This provides security for our owner and customers, suppliers and
employees, who can trust that the company will progress stably.
Economic sustainability is achieved through competitive and value-added delivery and the ability to create long-term customer relationships. A sharp focus on results is also necessary, simultaneous with the respect of laws and ordinances and application of good business practice.

Environmental care - for long-term ecological sustainability
Coor's environmental care includes a continuous attempt to reduce the company's own environmental impact, and influencing our customers and assisting them in their environmental work. Coor's accountability is reflected in the standards we set for our suppliers.
Coor's direct environmental impact mainly relates to CO2 emissions (from transport and energy consumption) the usage of chemicals and waste management. Coor ensures structured internal environmental work through its ISO 14001 certification. Coor also works on a structured and active basis on its attempts to assist the company's customers to reduce their environmental impact, and has a proprietary environmental labeling system, Coor Green Services, for this purpose.

Far-reaching responsibility extending to suppliers
Coor also assumes responsibility for the services the company delivers through subcontractors, and accordingly sets high standards for them, and its major suppliers. When entering supplier agreements, Coor evaluates its suppliers thoroughly based on their technical, financial and organizational capacity, and their overall delivery capacity. Coor also verifies that the subcontractor can satisfy its environmental policy and its Code of Conduct. After signing agreements, Coor also monitors deliveries to ensure they satisfy the initial standards applying in the tendering process.
