ESPOO, FINLAND--(Marketwire - May 28, 2012) -
Nokia has published its 2011 Sustainability Report, which covers the ethical, socio-economic and environmental areas most relevant to Nokia's business and its stakeholders.
Nokia's activities are divided into two themes: the People section describes, among other things, the positive effect that mobility has on standards of education, health and economic well-being across the world; the Planet section introduces Nokia's sustainable devices and covers our impact on the environment and our environmental strategy.
"Nokia strongly believes that access to communication and information is a right, not a privilege. Mobile communications technology has the power to strengthen public life and role of citizens around the globe, and it has proven time and again that it can democratize the spread of information," Nokia's CEO Stephen Elop says in the report.
The report highlights Nokia's performance in the areas where business practices most affect society and environment. There were nine key topics in 2011 which are reviewed in the report. These topics are improving people's life with mobile technology; Nokia's economic impact; labor and social issues in Nokia's operations; social issues and ethics in supply chain; customer satisfaction, privacy and product safety; environmentally leading mobile device range; take back and recycling; green operations and facilities; green supply chain and logistics.
The full report is available at www.nokia.com/sustainability-report along with a video interview with Stephen Elop and Kirsi Sormunen, Vice President, Sustainability.
Nokia has published corporate responsibility reports since 2002 and reports about its environmental activities since 1999. We also included information about our sustainability efforts in our annual report on Form 20-F 2011, which we published in March 2012.
