Valmet's global social responsibility program consists of several local projects around the world.
Valmet’s social responsibility program is part of the company’s sustainability agenda implementation. The program is based on three themes promoting science, nature and equal opportunities: ‘Towards the future with science’, ‘Protecting the planet for next generations’ and ‘Equal opportunities for wellbeing’. Based on these themes, several local projects in Valmet’s operating areas around the world have been selected to the program.

Additionally, Valmet has supported SOS Children´s Village in Chennai since 2008 and has since 2016 made an annual seasonal donation to a selected non-profit organization such as the Ocean Cleanup, Plan International, Save the Children, WWF, UN Women and Doctors Without Borders.
In Asia-Pacific, Valmet collaborates with The Mirror Foundation to support three rural schools with more than 900 pupils. The program focuses on improving the school conditions such as toilet facilities and availability of clean drinking water and renovating a library to enhance learning.
