Decarbonisation is a joint effort

Decarbonisation is a joint effort

The world of energy is like a complex ecosystem. Many different players – energy producers, industrial clients, consumers, decision-makers, and various partners – contribute to creating a balanced, sustainable energy system. Now, in the midst of the energy transition towards carbon neutrality, it is all the more important that we work together to reach our shared climate goals.

On these pages, we showcase Fortum’s collaboration projects and partnerships. Fortum cooperates with a variety of companies and organisations across Europe. We innovate together to build a cleaner world. We co-create solutions that help us take longer, faster strides towards a zero-carbon society. By sharing ideas, expertise and resources, we can accomplish more.

In a changing world, collaboration is key.
