Our practices

The operations of Norilsk Nickel Harjavalta are based on longer-term planning – in all areas.

We live in the today but taking the future into account; we keep our gaze on both the present and the far horizon. We want to secure all aspects of our long-term operational requirements, including the environment, safety, economy and social capital.

Only when environmental and safety issues are in tiptop shape, can we start looking at the economic aspect.


The EHS policy of Norilsk Nickel Harjavalta Oy adheres with all Finnish and EU regulations and directives concerning the environment and health and safety issues.

For us, the EHS policy is not merely fancy words, and we make our targets even stricter than required in the permit conditions defined by the authorities. This applies equally to waste recycling, environmental regulations, reduction of carbon footprint, work ergonomics, health issues as well as the well-being of personnel.
