An integral part of our strategy is creating conditions for new growth opportunities, particularly in fast growing markets.
Since our strategy review in 2010, we have deepened our understanding of the growth opportunities in emerging markets in Asia. Based on research Fortum’s Board of Directors decided to move forward with the implementation of our strategy. This is done by assessing and taking forward concrete growth initiatives in India. Consequently Fortum starts preparations and recruitment of staff to establish an office in India.
Maria Paatero-Kaarnakari, SVP Corporate Strategy and R&D, is responsible for the preparations of establishing the new office in India. The aim is to launch the office early next year in Delhi.
