Sustainability, sadly, it’s not top priority for most consumers. But it is for Nokia and for pretty much forever have been taking sustainability pretty seriously.

Sustainability creates and maintains the conditions under which humans and nature can exist in productive harmony, that permit fulfilling the social, economic and other requirements of present and future generations.

Sustainability is important to making sure that we have and will continue to have,  the water, materials, and resources to protect human health and our environment.

According to the  Carbon Disclosure Project, Nokia is one of the world’s top 10 companies when it comes to climate change disclosure and performance. Nokia was one of the companies praised for “improving their climate accountability, achieving higher average disclosure scores year-on-year”.

Nokia also improved their rating on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index ranking, coming joint second in 21 communications and technology companies on the list.

Nokia has improved its score from last year and is now in joint-second place, of the 21 communications and technology companies on the list.

Of all the communications technology companies only 21 have been selected to this list, and Nokia,  is in shared second place together with Cisco Systems and Motorola Solutions behind the sector leader, Alcatel-Lucent.

Nokia has been included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes since the year after its launch, for 13 consecutive years. The 2012/2013 indexes comprises 340 global companies.
