Aiming to be forerunners

Sustainability forms an integral part of our acquisition process and ownership agenda. Aspo's businesses aim to be forerunners in sustainability. Aspo has defined new ESG themes and targets for the material areas of the group and its business operations. Key ESG themes are:

  • Growing our business while lowering pressure to the environment
  • Improving Aspo experience for people in our value chain
  • Driving sound governance practices at all levels

In order to support our sustainability commitments, Aspo has defined specific ESG targets.




The main target is to reduce emission intensity CO2 (tn) / turnover (t€), by 30% by the year 2025. The starting point (2020) is 0.44, while the target level (2025) is 0.30. In 2022, the emission intensity improved, due to the growth of the businesses, operational excellency and new operating models and stood at 0.33 (0.42).
