Paper Mart interacted with Mr. Varun Jain, Director India Region, Valmet, to glean insights on how the Company integrates a triple bottom line approach within the way it operates.
Valmet has created a strong foundation for people development and top performance, and its 17,000 people around the world are committed to moving their customer’s performance forward. We use the OurVoice survey to measure engagement, performance excellence, and values awareness levels, which are important for growing as a company and building a strong Valmet community.
We continuously look for ways to enable individual performance and support development. We utilise our global training portfolio to inspire new thinking, bring minds together, and ultimately support growth and drive our strategic initiatives and Must-Wins.
The Valmet community is a diverse one. We continuously work to build and develop teams from different backgrounds, genders and cultures. Having a diverse workforce creates a more dynamic work environment and leads to new ideas and more competitive products.
Sustainability is at the core of Valmet’s business strategy and operations. Valmet’s mission is to convert renewable resources into sustainable results. This means that our technology and services make it possible for our customers to manufacture sustainable products from renewable resources. We believe that technology plays a key role in mitigating climate change and global warming in the transition to a carbon-neutral economy. This is why we have created an ambitious climate program − Forward to a carbon-neutral future − which continues our comprehensive sustainability work.
Our climate program includes ambitious CO2 emission reduction targets and concrete actions for the whole value chain, including the supply chain, our own operations, and customers’ use of our technologies. These targets will be achieved without emission compensation. The program is aligned with the Paris Climate Agreement´s 1.5-degree pathway and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The climate program’s targets have been approved by the Science Based Targets initiative.
Valmet aims to be seen as a trusted local partner and to build mutual relations with our stakeholders. With global operations, we provide employment and business opportunities to a wide range of stakeholders and indirectly build wealth in local societies. By delivering more sustainable and cost-competitive solutions and services to our customers, we can generate added value for our shareholders and support global efforts to combat climate change.
