Our ESG approach

While we nurture a culture that values and promotes sustainable and ethical operations, we deliver application expertise and solutions that help improve the sustainability performance of the entire value chain.

Supporting the UN Sustainable Development Goals

Our environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) targets are linked to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We are committed to chemical safety and environmental awareness and expect every member of our organization to apply responsible ways of working in all our operations. We comply with all local regulations and legislative requirements concerning our operations and we are highly committed to environmental safety, fair and safe working conditions, and fighting corruption.


"Sustainability is one of our core values and strategic priorities at Telko. We are committed to reducing our environmental impact, promoting social responsibility, and ensuring ethical conduct throughout our operations, but also inside the whole value chain where we operate. We believe that sustainability is not only a moral duty, but also a source of competitive advantage and long-term value creation. We are proud of the progress we have made so far, but we also recognize that there is still much work to be done."

Lowering the pressure to the environment

We are aware of our environmental impact and are actively working to reduce it. Our actions focus on lowering our carbon intensity and improving waste management. Additionally, we aim to expand our environmental handprint by providing more sustainable options that support our customers’ sustainability goals.


Improving the Telko experience for people in our value chain

Our commitment to social sustainability is reflected in our efforts to create a safe, engaging, and inclusive high-performance culture. We have operations in 17 countries, and in each location, we encourage our employees to act according to our values: Success by People, Responsibility, Partnership, and Continuous Development. Our values are not just words, but principles that guide our actions.


Driving sound governance practices at all levels

We foster a culture that values and promotes sustainable, compliant, and ethical operations. This requires a commitment to our Code of Conduct and compliance, as well as the ongoing development of our sustainability program.
