Sustainability

A sustainable future is in our hands

At AINS Group, individuals play a huge role in the realisation of sustainability. Everything's based on a work community, in which people and the environment are appreciated. A community that inspires and gives everyone an opportunity to take concrete actions to promote a sustainable future.

We create tools via people and actions to build a sustainable living environment in a systematic way, to be measured in collaboration with stakeholders.

We treasure work well-being

Prosperous and motivated experts are our most important resource. That's why we do our all for the well-being of our employees. 

We want to offer a work community – equal, appreciative and inclusive – that takes the comprehensive well-being into account. The kind of a place where our experts feel at home and want to commit.

We measure the fulfillments of these goals yearly with an employee survey and the PeoplePower index. We aim for an excellent employee experience.

OUR ACTIONS can be seen in our increasing knowledge of sustainable development and in concrete, proactive actions.

We develop our knowledge

In order to call ourselves an expert of construction and real estate we must constantly maintain and improve our professional knowledge.

Our sustainability programme especially aims to accumulate knowledge and understanding of environmental effects of the built environment, and to keep evaluating our procedures. 

Our goal is to know the environmental effects of our own actions and to find the ways to strengthen the positive ones even further.

We follow and report our sustainability

Our sustainability programme is not a project but a process. We continuously develop our work in  sustainability's terms and set new goals for the programme when the ones set before have been accomplished.
 
The realisation of our sustainability programme is guided by AINS Group's accountability and quality director together with a company liability group formed from different branches. The accountability and quality director reports to the corporate management. The sustainability report is published every year on this page.
