Lehto is focusing on future´s wooden construction and is part of the Green Build Council that gathers and refines the know-how of sustainable development of the building and construction industry.
Lehto Group is committed to complying with legislation and regulations, and to otherwise conduct our business in an ethical and responsible manner.
Lehto has a public code of conduct for our partners (in Finnish). We have appended the code of conduct to all new procurement contracts signed in 2019, and the code of conduct has also been sent to our existing partners. The guidelines take into account requirements concerning issues such as corruption, employee wellbeing, and respecting property and the environment. Cooperation partners must inform Lehto’s contact person immediately if they notice or suspect activities that are illegal or contravene code of conduct or ethical principles. Cooperation partners can also contact Lehto anonymously.
We take all actions that violate our Code of Conduct seriously and hope that we will be notified promptly of any suspected misconduct related to Lehto. You can make a notification by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. All notifications will be treated confidentially.
Lehto´s goal is that every day is safe day and construction sites and factories are clean and tidy and safe to work. Our policy is that all employees in production-related
work must have a valid Occupational Safety Card. In
addition, the Group arranges training on occupational
safety and first aid. Through preventive measures and
training, Lehto Group seeks to prevent accidents at
work and influence employees’ attitudes.
Lehto Group is positive towards employee competence development and supports it in a variety of ways. Lehto had four comprehensive personnel training programmes in 2019: Lehto’s Induction Programme, Career Promise, Management Academy and Production Academy. Lehto Group seeks to be a good and fair employer for everyone. In late 2018, we measured our employees’ job satisfaction with an extensive personnel survey. The results show that we are rated AA according to People Power®, outperforming the Finnish general norm.
Besides our way of work decreases excessive transportations to the construction site and will be in the future more and more focus on wooden construction we wanted to show small responsible stories from tour everyday life.
On 22 March 2021, a milestone of 100 accident-free days was achieved by those working in the Lehto Housing service area.
Every summer, Lehto takes part in the lighthearted Kilometre Contest (Kilometrikisa) in which companies form a team and attempt to rack up kilometres on their bikes. The Lehto team pedalled their way to an astounding total of 17,688 kilometres, thereby saving 1,238 litres of petrol and 3,095 kg of carbon dioxide.
Lehto made use of construction site advertising banners that were otherwise headed for the trash. With the aid of Globe Hope, they were turned into bags for first-aid kits.
Lehto built an extension to the Bredis Retail Park, and it received a LEED Gold certificate in 2021.
