Fortum and the City of Espoo have committed to carbon-neutral district heating production in the district heating network operating in the Espoo, Kauniainen and Kirkkonummi areas during the 2020s. The intermediate goal is to phase out coal during 2025. This carbon neutrality project is called Espoo Clean Heat.
