Tieto initiated a materiality assessment engaging internal and external stakeholders at end of 2016. As a result, nine sustainability areas were identified and chosen to guide Tieto´s approach in the sustainable business and form the core of the Corporate Responsibility 2020 plan.
While Tieto’s material sustainability areas are reviewed on an annual basis, the materiality analysis and Corporate Responsibility 2020 plan are guiding the work until the end of the current strategy period. The new list of sustainability areas is based on the materialityanalysis conducted in 2016, and is presented in the graph below. The areas are material for the whole Tieto Corporation, unless otherwise stated, and cover Tieto’s operating countries.
In this materiality analysis, conducted according to GRI Standards requirements, stakeholder engagement included a sustainability area survey of employees, partners and suppliers. Selected customers were met for dialogue on sustainability and focus areas, and an open survey as well as a Twitter chat was organized for the general public.
Tieto believes that an open and transparent dialogue with its stakeholders is the best way to evaluate our footprint as a corporate citizen. In addition to conducting separate CR materiality assessments, the company strives to integrate CR as an integral part of everyday interactions with customers and other stakeholders.
