Sustainability

By taking into account the entire life cycle of a property or an industrial facility, we contribute to sustainable development. Caverion creates user-friendly, safe and energy-efficient built environments. Energy efficiency is embedded in all of our services and solutions. In addition, we strive to keep the negative environmental impacts of our own operations as minor as possible.

Ensuring the safety of our employees, partners and customers is an inherent and necessary part of everyday business and management across our group. Our goal is to become an accident-free workplace. We focus on preventive safety work, including anticipation of risks and the active reporting of safety observations.

In accordance with our Code of Conduct, we do not allow discrimination of any kind, such as related to age, gender, nationality, social status, religion, physical or mental disability, political or other opinions or sexual orientation.

Caverion´s goal is to secure the talent availability, employee engagement and motivation as well as the professional growth and learning of our personnel.
