A responsible company also takes into account the impact of its actions on society and various stakeholders. Nornickel Harjavalta is committed to developing the well-being of Satakunta.
We engage in diverse co-operation with different organizations. Key sponsorship areas include co-operation with schools and researchers and support for local co-operation activities. 50% of the sponsorship funds used each year by the company are invested in regional and national projects through education and 50% in regional, personnel and residential wellbeing. Through local co-operation we want to support associations, clubs or events that, by their actions, improve regional well-being. Read more about Sponsorship.
We have a long history of co-operation with schools. Our aim is to spark interest towards the natural sciences in children and young people. We provide students at different levels of education with information about different jobs and working life.
We visit schools, and groups of students often visit our facilities to learn more about our company.
Supporting professional excellence is an important part of Nornickel Harjavalta’s responsible business activities.
Through co-operation, we build our corporate and employer image and help train our employees for future needs. Every year we hire several engineering students to carry out research related to e.g. process and chemical engineering.
In addition to thesis and diploma work, research co-operation is carried out with different universities. Nornickel Harjavalta can act as a co-financer in the projects.
