Meet Fortum’s Faces of transition!

Meet our Faces of Transition

Climate change is on everyone’s lips – and it should be! We have a massive challenge in front of us to make sure that we can live in a world where clean energy is available for all of us reliably and at a reasonable price. To do that, we need to change the energy system together.

Fortum and Uniper are together already one of the largest CO2-free power producers in Europe. Our target is to be completely carbon-neutral in Europe by 2035 and globally by 2050. But what is the key ingredient to ensuring that our energy production is clean, reliable and sustainable? The answer: our people!

Get to know Fortum’s and Uniper’s Faces of transition – a group of passionate people sharing their stories on how they all work towards the same goal; to create a cleaner world for us all. Stay tuned for more stories!

How do data centres impact climate?

Data volumes are growing exponentially worldwide, and the use of cloud services is on the rise. This will quickly expand the need for powerful data centres. Finland has excellent opportunities to mitigate the climate impacts of digitalisation: we can offer data centres clean electricity and use the waste heat generated by the centres to replace coal-based heat production.
