We operate Safely. Always. 

To protect ourselves, our colleagues and all our stakeholders we work and carry out our day-to-day jobs and tasks in a safe manner. We work safely, comply with our cardinal safety rules, assess potential risks and take appropriate measures to mitigate them. When we work safely always, we prevent accidents and protect those around us.

We leverage the power of one Outokumpu. 

As a large global company, we have the benefit of an enormous amount of knowledge and expertise inhouse to bring together and make use of. We work together as one global team and one company, share and combine our knowledge across teams, functions and regions to create the best value for our customers.

We deliver.

We live up to our promises with clear roles and accountabilities, internally and externally. Our stakeholders expect us to do what we have promised: when we commit to something, we are responsible and accountable. Furthermore, we have a passion for continuous improvement.

We grow people and value diversity.

We foster diversity and we want to create a work environment that allows all team members to contribute, develop and grow. We operate in an increasingly global environment with a diverse organization in terms of e.g. age, culture, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, etc. It is very important that all people feel comfortable and invited to work in the company and can contribute equally to our joint journey.

We act sustainably. 

We are the industry leader in sustainability, and sustainability is at the core of Outokumpu. We are driven by creating sustainable impact, environmentally, socially and economically. There are many aspects in sustainability which we can accomplish: we take continuous steps forward to improve, not only related to the environment but in general how we operate as a company. 

We are a trusted partner. 

Being a trusted partner encompasses all dimensions of compliance and reliability in relation to our stakeholders, such as customers, employees, investors and communities we operate in. Outokumpu Code of Conduct outlines the most important principles and guidelines to follow in everyday business and helps us to make the right choices.
