Our responsibility mindset is based on the sustainability strategy of our parent company Kyndryl.
In the beginning of 2023, we paused to consider which areas we want to prioritize from a sustainability perspective. This resulted in four sustainability themes under which we have started brainstorming and implementing actions that create good around us.
Our sustainability journey is still in its early stages, but step by step, we are on our way towards a better tomorrow. Even though we are just getting started, we are excited and committed to our CSR themes and acting as an exemplary company for the benefit of our society.

Raising Awareness Through Expertise
Environment First in Daily Operations
“As we operate in the finance industry, we have a special responsibility to act transparently and openly for the benefit of society. We continuously want to promote equality and inclusivity in all our operations. Our sustainability journey is in its beginning, but one day we aspire to be a front-runner as a responsible business operator. The support of our parent company Kyndryl brings a strong foundation to this goal.”

Small Actions Every Day
As we develop the big picture of our sustainability work, we strive to make small good deeds in our daily lives and bring a sustainability perspective into every workday.
Samlink Cares Program – Volunteering at Work Time
We provide our employees with the opportunity to use up to eight hours of working time per year for voluntary work. Working for a good cause of one’s choice makes a positive impact on the world and makes the power of unity visible in the world around us.
Contributions to charity
Samlink participates in charity events and supports selected charitable organizations. This year, we sponsored Team Rynkeby Espoo cycling team, which raises money for seriously ill children. We also make an annual Christmas donation to a different charity.
Hybrid work and eco-friendly commuting
A large portion of our employees work from home for most of their workdays, significantly reducing emissions from their commutes. We encourage our employees to cycle to work by offering a bicycle benefit. At our Espoo office, we have shared bicycles that can be used for short distances in an environmentally friendly way.
Opportunities for development
We offer our employees the opportunity to train themselves using the extensive training library of Kyndryl.
We invest in risk management and controlled growth. We regularly communicate openly about our financial activities.
Making employees’ voices heard
Our employees are involved in decision-making in various ways. For example, we developed our strategy together with our employees.
Communication creates understanding
Sustainability communication is part of our internal communication strategy. We publish monthly sustainability content for our employees and strive to increase their understanding of various topics.
