Kesko's responsibility programme that was updated in 2012 contains both short- and long-term objectives for Kesko's and the whole K-Group's operations up to 2020,” says Kesko's President and CEO Matti Halmesmäki.
Kesko signed the trading sector energy efficiency agreement in 2008 and made a commitment to cut its energy consumption by 65 GWh through various saving actions by the end of 2016. Kesko's determined work is proceeding faster than expected: by the end of 2012, Kesko had already achieved around 70 percent of this objective.
This year, more than before, Kesko's report highlights employees and K-retailers who work for responsibility as well as key stakeholders' views in the addresses by a customer, a chamber of commerce, a pension insurance company and a non-governmental organisation.
”Customers expect us to ensure the implementation of responsibility across the entire supply chain regardless of its length,” says Matti Mettälä, Senior Vice President responsible for corporate responsibility.
Kesko's Corporate Responsibility Report for 2012 has been published in Finnish and English in print and online. It is available at and, and can be ordered at
