In the roadmap we have set ambitious numeric long-term goals that will boost our sustainability development towards 2030. The roadmap is divided into four focal areas of sustainability: Our Distillery, Our Drink, Our Society and Our People.

Altia’s distillery in the village of Koskenkorva uses about 210 million kilos of Finnish barley a year. The distillery produces grain spirit for Altia’s alcoholic beverages. The Koskenkorva distillery is based on bio and circular economy: 100% of the grain is utilised. None of it goes to waste. Altia received the Green Company of the Year 2018 award for the circular economy at the Koskenkorva distillery.
In corporate responsibility reporting, Altia follows the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Guidelines. As of the Annual Report 2017, the company also publishes a non-financial statement in accordance with the EU Directive and the Finnish Accounting Act.
