TVO is deeply committed to responsibility

Values, materiality analysis, Company-level policies, internal procedures and external commitments have a steering effect on the leadership of financial, environmental and social responsibility. TVO's Code of Conduct is based on the 2011 updated version of OECD's code of conduct guidelines for multinational enterprises. TVO honours the Business Charter for Sustainable Development of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC). TVO also participates in the Energy Efficiency Agreement Scheme of the Finnish Government and various sectors and industries, and complies with the associated Action Plan for Energy Production that describes the implementation of actions designed to make the use of energy more efficient and to improve the efficiency of primary energy use as well as the total performance of energy production. 

For every TVO employee, responsibility as a value translates into uncompromised quality of work, actions that meet high safety requirements, and compliance with agreed and valid rules. The personnel of TVO are committed to an uncompromising safety culture and the entire personnel are expected to foster this culture.
