Diversity, equity and inclusion targets

Kesko has concrete targets for gender equity. We aim to increase the share of women in the Group Management Board and in the division management teams to 33% by 2030. Furthermore, our aim is to have zero unfounded pay differences between genders. We are preparing a diversity and inclusion programme and regularly measure the employees' views on the implementation of inclusion and equity.
