Teosto sustainability report 2022

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.


In our corporate social responsibility reporting, we strive to comply with the GRI (Global Reporting Initiative) framework, according to which we report particularly on the development of matters essential to Teosto.
