This year, the theme of YIT’s Annual Report is More life in sustainable cities. Urbanisation is progressing practically throughout the world, and increasing attention is being paid to the quality of the urban environment and urban life. The aim of this theme is to tell how people’s diverse needs and changing life circumstances challenge us to create better and more sustainable living environments.

Our goal is to develop and build sustainable urban environments that retain their value, where services are located close to residents, and where public transport makes everyday life easier and helps reduce emissions. This year, we publish for the first time YIT’s Sustainable Urban Environments indicators, which allow us to follow the distance of our self-developed projects from public transportation and grocery shops. 

YIT’s Annual Report is prepared under the integrated reporting framework. The Annual Report aims to provide a clearer description of how YIT creates added value for its customers, shareholders, suppliers, personnel and other stakeholders. The Annual Report also includes a review of YIT’s corporate responsibility and the GRI Index applicable to YIT.

YIT’s Annual Report is published only published in electronic format, as a PDF file. The online publication of the annual report helps us achieve our goals related to sustainable development and environmental responsibility.
