We follow the activities of non-governmental organisations and engage in a dialogue with them. In addition, we carry out most of our sponsorships in collaboration with organisations.
We engage in collaboration with environmental organisations regarding the eco-labelling of electricity products in Finland and Sweden. We also participate in projects related to local environmental protection or maintaining biodiversity. Part of the funding for the environmental projects comes from the sales of eco-labelled electricity.
