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:
