Updated responsibility programme

The updating of the 2008–2012 responsibility programme started in late 2011. During 2012, stakeholder expectations and wishes were extensively examined by interviewing management and retailers, conducting surveys and organising stakeholder panels. The results obtained as well as stakeholder expectations, impacts on Kesko’s business and the major aspects identified in the course of updating the vision for corporate responsibility and the materiality assessment formed the basis for the various sections of the responsibility programme.

The responsibility programme was updated by the Group- and divisionlevel project group and discussed by the management boards of various divisions during spring 2012. Kesko’s Corporate Management Board discussed the responsibility programme in November 2012 and Kesko’s Board of Directors approved the programme in December 2012. The updated responsibility programme was published in February 2013.

The responsibility programme applies to all of Kesko’s divisions and contains both long-term and short-term objectives. Each division has prepared its own, division-specific objectives for the programme section. The commitments of the programme form its framework and, in the future, individual objectives can be annually specified more flexibly than before.

The commitments and key objectives of the responsibility programme are presented on this page and at www.kesko.fi. The themes of the report are based on the objectives and results of the responsibility programme’s corresponding sections. The programme results for 2012 are presented  more extensively for the years 2008–2012 at www.kesko.fi.
