WithSecure™ has created a W/Sustainability program

June 2023 by Marc Jacob

Sustainability is a global challenge that affects every person and organization on the planet. To help overcome this challenge, WithSecure™ (formerly known as F-Secure Business) has created a W/Sustainability program that commits it to operating as an ethical, equitable, and environmentally responsible global citizen.

W/Sustainability is a program that embeds sustainability and transparency into WithSecure’s strategy and operations. The program was built based on surveys and in-depth interviews with customers, investors, leaders, and WithSecure™ employees, to understand the relevance of areas of sustainability for various stakeholders.

As a result of these consultations, W/Sustainability was grouped into three themes:
• Safer and greener digital world: Minimizing the energy consumed by WithSecure’s solutions while maximising the security outcomes to customers, and sharing cyber security knowledge with those who need it.
• Truly equitable workplace: Ensuring all WithSecure™ employees feel they can bring their best and true self to work and enjoy opportunities to learn and grow.
• Responsibly run business: Maintaining the highest ethical standards to ensure WithSecure™ chooses partners responsibly and strives to minimize its environmental footprint everywhere it can.

“Protecting digital society is our most important contribution to a more sustainable world. However, we don’t want to stop there. Our W/Sustainability program ensures that sustainability is embedded in all our decisions, and that the impact of these activities is transparent in our reporting,” explained WithSecure™ President and CEO Juhani Hintikka.

Examples of concrete initiatives implemented as part of W/Sustainability include:
• Established partnerships that allow WithSecure™ personnel to provide pro-bono security services to non-governmental organizations and other groups working with vulnerable communities.
• Created an internal “green coding” program that aims to measure and reduce the amount of energy consumed by software.
• WithSecure’s partnership with Tapio Lehtinen Sailing and its sponsorship of the Galiana WithSecure sailboat to promote sustainable, carbon-neutral solutions.

WithSecure™ Head of Product Management Leszek Tasiemski, who spearheads the company’s green coding efforts, feels that many software vendors could benefit from implementing a similar approach to their own software development.
