In 2017 we reached most of our corporate-level sustainability targets, such as a target in specific carbon dioxide emissions, energy efficiency improvements and sickness absence rate of employees. However, we had a challenging year in safety and we did not reach all our safety targets. Read also about our measures to promote the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals in the report.
