Social and Environmental Responsibility
Social responsibility is one of our central values at Anttila. For this reason Anttila follows ethical principles based on the international Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI). Anttila's buyers carry and use a handbook on ethical quality control. It contains detailed instructions on operating processes. A questionnaire is used to gather basic information on suppliers concerning the extent of their operations and social responsibility.
Anttila as one part of the Kesko Group has done practical environmental work since 1980's. The motto of our activities is "Environmental awareness in action". Therefore Anttila takes into consideration the environmental effects of a product's entire lifecycle, in addition to its price and quality. Anttila promotes the development of products which have less harmfull effects to the environment.
Anttila has adopted an environmental management system based on the ISO 14001 standard. It has been certified since 2004 in all Anttila department stores, Kodin Ykkönen stores, NetAnttila and the Logistics Centre.
