Altia postpones its Annual General Meeting 2020

Altia cancels its Annual General Meeting covened for 25 March 2020 and postpones it to a later date.

The carbon footprint of barley starch produced at Altia’s Koskenkorva plant is 1,140 kg CO2-eq/ton. The carbon footprint has significantly decreased in just over ten years, mainly due to the development of fertiliser manufacture used in barley cultivation and the use of renewable energy at the Koskenkorva plant. Barley starch is used as a raw material in, for example, the paper and paperboard industries, brewing industry and food industry.

In 2019, Altia strengthened its long-term commitment to responsibility by publishing the Sustainability Roadmap extending to 2030. Last year’s key events in Altia's responsibility work includes calculation of the carbon footprint of its products, inclusion of the Koskenkorva distillery on Sitra’s list of the most interesting companies in the circular economy as well as launch of a new development programme for occupational safety.
