Balanced finances and good governance

Balanced finances and good governance

Financial responsibility and good corporate governance mean the balanced and sustainable development of Ponsse’s finances, while addressing ethical business, stakeholders and the environment.

Ponsse has always been a family-owned company, and its management has emphasised values and long-term business. It is important for us to maintain a good balance between the company’s growth, profitability, and cash flow from business operations. This brings stability and continuity to local communities across our global field of operations.

We wish to grow responsibly, and hence our decision-making emphasises long-term operational development and building a strong financial foundation for future security. We are continuously investing in research and development, the supply chain, and aftersales service network in Finland and in our subsidiaries’ operating countries. We wish to further transparent tax policy and always report our tax information according to statutory requirements and our transparency objectives.
