SATO head office awarded Green Office certificate

19 February 2024

The SATO head office in Helsinki has been awarded the Green Office certificate for its environmental management system that is in compliance with the Green Office model developed and maintained by WWF Finland. The certification is proof of SATO’s commitment to sustainable development and long-term sustainability objectives.

Green Office is an important tool for the environmental management of the SATO head office. We have used it to create a tailored programme for our office to reduce the carbon footprint of our workplace and to use natural resources sparingly.

“We decided to apply for the Green Office certification, as the programme is a comprehensive tool for environmental management. It takes account of a full range of aspects including recycling, water consumption and electricity consumption. The assessment also covers the work carried out and products used by the various providers of services such as restaurant and cleaning services,” says Service Manager Riikka Korhonen, who is responsible for the programme at SATO.

We are committed to promoting the environmental management programme through various campaigns and info briefings in the future too. Going forward, work to comply with the Green Office principles will be assessed annually, and the SATO head office will be inspected every three years to verify it meets the certificate criteria.

Each year, SATO publishes a comprehensive Sustainability Report that describes the company’s measures in the various areas of sustainability.
