Our sustainability objectives for the 2023–2025 strategy period

We specified our sustainability objectives as part of Digia’s strategy and objectives for the 2023–2025 period:

Planet: We seek to reduce our CO2 emissions by 60 per cent from the 2019 baseline by 2025. Our longer-term objective is to be carbon neutral throughout the entire value chain in 2030.

People: We aim to improve our employee net promoter score (eNPS) by 35 per cent from the 2022 baseline by 2025.

Trusted partner: We aim to improve our net promoter score (NPS) by 25 per cent from the 2022 baseline by 2025.

Principles and management of responsibility

Our responsibility is based on our Code of Conduct, which is approved by the Board of Directors, and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. We are committed to respecting human rights in accordance with the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the UN Global Compact, and the International Labour Organisation’s (ILO) Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work. We are a member of the UN Global Compact.

The CEO is responsible for Digia’s corporate responsibility, while the Senior Vice President, HR, Culture and Sustainability is in charge of responsibility reporting. The corporate responsibility working group heads up operational responsibility efforts, coordinated by focus area. The Head of Sustainability chairs the corporate responsibility management team, and the Senior Vice President, HR, Culture and Sustainability is responsible to the Group Management Team.

The key indicators for corporate responsibility are regularly monitored in the management teams. Digia’s corporate responsibility targets and indicators are approved by both the Group Management Team and the Board of Directors.

Sustainability reporting

We monitor the development of responsibility and report on it to the Group Management Team on a quarterly basis. Development measures are reported on as set out in the project plan. In connection with the company’s annual reporting, we draft a sustainability report in accordance with EU regulations.

In addition to our own internal assessments and reporting, Digia’s responsibility is also assessed externally by selected parties. We use the results of these assessments in the development of our responsibility.


UN Global Compact

We are part of UN Global Compact, the world's largest corporate sustainability initiative. Digia commits to UN’s ten principles related to human rights, working conditions, environment and the prevention of corruption, as well as to developing business responsibility through the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

ESG Transparency Badge 2022

Nasdaq ESG Transparency Partner

We are a Nasdaq ESG Transparency Partner. The partnership is granted to companies that report about their responsibility transparently and openly. Nasdaq provides a platform for investors in particular that provides ESG information on listed companies. 



Digia has reported to Ecovadis since 2016. EcoVadis experts are the world’s leading sustainability assessors. They assess how well companies comply with requirements and what action they take in relation to the environment, labour and human rights, ethics and procurement. We use the results to help us monitor our own development.



In 2022, we completed Digia’s first CDP report. We achieved a rating of B- (Management), which is higher than the C average for the IT and software development sector. CDP reporting involves a detailed assessment of companies’ environmental impacts on climate change, water and forests, and the strategies employed to mitigate these risks.

EU Taxonomy

The EU Taxonomy Regulation (EU 2020/852) seeks to define standardised, science-based assessment criteria for environmentally sustainable economic activities.

Digia’s field of business is to build IT solutions and engage in related projects, maintenance and consulting. All of Digia’s business operations have been defined as taxonomy-eligible.

A substantial part of Digia’s business operations consist of activities that either substantially contribute to climate change adaptation in accordance with Activity 8.1 (“Data processing, hosting and related activities”) or substantially contribute to climate change mitigation in accordance with Activities 8.1 (“Data processing, hosting and related activities”) or 8.2 (“Data-driven solutions for GHG emissions reductions”).

Digia has conducted the analysis at project level, compiling data from the bottom up to ensure its accuracy and also verify that business operations are not reported twice under different taxonomy classes.

2022 Net sales (MEUR) Share of net sales
Taxonomy-eligible net sales 170.8 100%
Taxonomy-aligned net sales 24.3 14.2%
