G4-11 Personnel covered by collective bargaining agreements   Fingrid complies with the collective labour agreement for salaried employees and senior professional employees in the energy industry. These agreements cover the entire personnel excluding top management. 3
G4-11 (add.) Fingrid’s contractors’ personnel covered by the collective labour agreements by country   According to the Act on the Contractor's Obligations and Liability when Work is Contracted Out, the entire chain of contractors at Fingrid’s work sites is obligated to operate in compliance with applicable Finnish collective labour agreements both regarding Finnish and non-Finnish workforce.  
G4-12 Organisation’s supply chain   Fingrid requires that its service and goods suppliers commit to Fingrid’s Supplier Code of Conduct or with their own similar code. The Code covers issues such as business practices, human rights, labour rights, occupational safety and the environment. The Supplier Code of Conduct is applied for procurements worth at least EUR 30,000 and they are linked, e.g., to material, equipment or ICT purchase agreements. Fulfilment of the requirements is monitored on a risk basis. The Code of Conduct is a condition for being included in supplier registers used in recurring substation and power line procurements. In addition, contractual partners are subject to separate contract conditions related to the use of subcontractors and workforce, and to occupational safety and environmental matters.

Building work on the grid is carried out on a project basis, in separate substation and transmission line projects as well as in turn-key contracts. The main contractor, acting in the role of Fingrid’s contractual counterparty, is in charge of the detailed design, the procurement of material and equipment as well as building and installations until commissioning. The main contractor on a specific project may have several subcontractors.

The qualifications of the contractors and service suppliers carrying out grid construction and maintenance are verified primarily by means of various supplier registers and shortlisting procedures. A validation system to ensure the proper qualifications of employees for performing basic maintenance on power lines and substations is also in place.

Fingrid has around 60 direct contractual partners, 12 of which account for roughly 90 per cent of the total financial value of the procurements. There are two companies with regional contracts on transmission line maintenance and four companies with regional substation maintenance contracts. Both the contractors’ and subcontractors’ use mostly Finnish workforce for grid building work. A substantial number of non-Finnish workers, hailing from countries such as Poland, Croatia, the Baltics, Germany and Italy work mainly on transmission line work sites. Grid maintenance suppliers and their suppliers use Finnish workforce. Some non-Finnish personnel is used in vegetation trimming at transmission lines and in areas requiring special expertise.

EU-4 Length of above and underground transmission and distribution lines   ​The transmission grid owned by Fingrid encompasses approx. 14,600 kilometres of 400, 220 and 110 kilovolt transmission lines, plus 118 substations and four HVDC substations.  
EU-5 Allocation of CO2e emissions allowances or equivalent, broken down by carbon trading framework Report of the Board of Directors ​Fingrid’s reserve power plants are included in the European Union's emissions trading system. The accuracy of the measuring and reporting systems for fuel consumption is verified by an accredited emissions trading verifier. A total of 10,326 (6,697) units (tCO2) of emission allowances were returned, all of which consisted of acquired emission rights units. Fingrid has not been granted free-of-charge emission rights for the emissions trade period 2013–2020. No emissions rights were purchased in 2016. Emissions trading had minor financial significance for Fingrid.  
G4-14 Whether and how the precautionary approach or principle is addressed by the organisation   The precautionary principle is included in Fingrid’s Code of Conduct and the UN’s Global Compact initiative, which Fingrid has committed to. The environmental impacts of new transmission line projects are analysed through an environmental impact assessment (EIA) or an environmental study in compliance with the Electricity Market Act. Fingrid’s reserve power plants are subject to an environmental permit.

G4-18 Process for defining the report content   An assessment of the substantial financial, social and environmental impacts of Fingrid’s operations, as well as the impacts on stakeholders’ decision-making was updated in 2016, taking into account the strong connection between sustainability and strategy and business and its impact on Fingrid’s ability to create value, as well as the requirements of the GRI reporting guidelines, which extend throughout the value chain. The starting point for the update was a thorough materiality analysis conducted in 2014, which included a broad background analysis, meetings attended by dozens of experts from Fingrid, and a stakeholder survey sent out to roughly 700 individuals. In 2016, the need to update the materiality analysis was evaluated by Fingrid’s development managers and the executive management group confirmed the most important issues concerning Fingrid’s operations as well as the adequacy of how such issues are managed.

Suspicions of behaviour that goes against Fingrid’s Code of Conduct must be reported to a supervisor, Fingrid’s management or internal audit without delay. An independent so-called whistleblowing channel is also in use. No reports were made via the whistleblowing channel during the year. Suspected breaches are investigated with confidentiality and discretion, ensuring that no negative consequences befall the person reporting the behaviour. Behaviour that goes against the Code of Conduct will lead to a discussion with the supervisor and, if necessary, other disciplinary measures. 1-10
