Finnish stainless steel business Outokumpu has titled its 2008 corporate responsibility report Outokumpu and our environment.

The report focuses on Outokumpu’s decision to make 2008 a year of corporate responsibility for the company. It includes details of how the company responded to the following challenges:
• listening to stakeholders
• the global financial downturn
• combating climate change
• well-being and safety.

Supported by case stories and based on the Global Reporting Initiative guidelines, it also includes an assurance report submitted by independent assurance providers.

Outokumpu, which has maintained membership in sustainability indexes such as the Dow Jones STOXX sustainability Index and the Dow Jones World Index, was the best corporate responsibility reporter in Finland in 2008, and joined and supports the UN Global Compact leadership initiative.

The report argues that stainless steel, being fully recyclable and maintenance-free – as well as very strong and durable material – is ‘one of the key building blocks for a sustainable future’.
