Information on topical issues at Fortum.
To prevent the worst impacts of climate change, we need to remove more CO2 from the atmosphere than we are releasing. As a complementary tool to actual emissions reductions, carbon removal is essential for reaching the 1.5-degree target set out in the Paris Agreement.
Our actions to fight climate change
Fortum considers climate change as one of the biggest challenges for mankind, and mitigation requires strong political commitment as well as ambitious and prompt action.
