“Our work with Natural Interest has proven to be highly instrumental for us to align our sustainability work at Tikkurila and mobilize our employees. Natural Interest’s innovative and holistic methods offered us a new approach to assess our sustainability targets and actions.
The practicality and business focus of the approach, as well as recommendations for strategic actions, has been especially valuable. We look forward to continuing our work together.”
