Teosto sustainability report 2021
Sustainable operations are at the core of Teosto’s objectives. We manage copyright professionally, efficiently and with respect.
We are a non-profit organisation. Our basic task is to enable the professional making and use of music.
Sustainability at Teosto is reflected in how we ensure the fulfilment of copyright and the quality and efficiency of their management. Our efforts are seen in the whole of society through the promotion of Finnish creative music. Our operations are based on trust, and trust is built on sustainable operations.
Our goal is to ensure that Finland offers good conditions for working in the the creative industries and using music professionally. We manage the copyrights of music authors and publishers and promote Finnish creative music.
TEOSTO SUSTAINABILITY IN A NUTSHELL
Corporate social responsibility aims to comply with the GRI (Global Reporting Initiative) framework, according to which we report particularly on the development of matters essential to Teosto. We regularly measure our progress in the core areas of our operations, and our aim is to improve our operations every year.
Teosto’s key sustainability indicators are:
We operate on the basis of the law, Teosto’s statutes and the decisions made by our General Meeting. Our operations are guided by the expectations of our stakeholders.
We want to carry responsibility for the diversity of music and for improving the working conditions of future generations of music authors.
Financial responsibility at Teosto means ensuring the efficiency and competitiveness of our operations as well as protecting the financial interests of our rightsholder members.
Environmental values play an important role in Teosto’s operations, and our goal is to become a carbon-neutral organisation.
Teosto carries responsibility for both its rightsholder members (composers, lyricists, arrangers and music publishers) and its staff.
