With our strategy we drive the change for a cleaner world
With our updated strategy, we will continue to drive the change for a cleaner world. We are securing a fast and reliable transition to a carbon-neutral economy by providing customers and societies with clean energy and sustainable solutions.
In alignment with the EU’s ambition and the goals of The Paris Agreement, we target carbon neutrality by 2050 at the latest and in our European fleet already by 2035.
Greenhouse gas emissions need to be reduced in all sectors, not just in energy but also in heating, cooling, industry and transportation. With Uniper, we are now a major European clean power and gas company – well-positioned to drive the clean energy transition. In addition, we have competencies and solutions to help our industrial and infrastructure customers to decarbonize their operations and improve their environmental footprint.
Fortum Group CEO Markus Rauramo:
”I am especially pleased that as a major international energy group, we have now committed to the ambitious climate targets. With our strategy, we want to drive the clean energy transition and at the same time, deliver sustainable financial performance.”
The updated strategy for Fortum Group has four strategic priorities
1. Transform our own operations to carbon neutral
2. Strengthen and grow in CO2-free power generation
3. Leverage strong position in gas to enable the energy transition
4. Partner with industrial and infrastructure customers
In 2021, Fortum continued to implement its strategy to drive the clean energy transition forward. Fortum has sat ambitious climate targets and committed to the carbon neutral target globally, in line with the goals of the Paris Agreement, by 2050 at the latest.
This year has been one of great changes in the societies around us. The pandemic has profoundly impacted the way we run our everyday lives, how we work and interact with each other. What hasn’t changed, however, is our shared awareness of the need for a fast energy transition to mitigate climate change.
