Finnair Plc. Stock Exchange Release 6 March 2013 at 12:00
Finnair publishes its annual Financial and Sustainability Reports today. The 2012 Financial Report contains among other things the Report of the Board of Directors, the Group Financial Statements, Finnair’s Corporate Governance Statement and Remuneration Statement.
The 2012 Sustainability Report, prepared according to guidelines established by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), details and assesses the financial, environmental and social sustainability of the Finnair Group’s activities in 2012. Magazine-style articles in the report also proactively discuss themes and issues of interest to all stakeholders, from customers to personnel to shareholders. Topics addressed include the airline’s efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, developments in carbon trading and air traffic management, aviation’s role in trade and economic development and the impact of restructuring on personnel.
Both reports are available digitally (PDF format) at www.finnairgroup.com in Finnish and English.
“These reports are important for stakeholders who require detailed information about our finances and operations,” says Arja Suominen, Senior Vice President, Communications and Corporate Responsibility. “A spirit of openness with customers, personnel and shareholders is a baseline requirement in these reports as well in other communications. We welcome and look forward to any feedback stakeholders may have, whether through engagement in social media or more traditional means.”
Finnair has reported on environmental sustainability since 1997, and in 2008 became one of the first airlines to report according to GRI guidelines. The GRI, formed with the support of the United Nations Environment Program, is the most widely recognised international authority on sustainability reporting.
