Key sustainability topics and targets

Sustainability lies at the heart of our strategy. Our vision for a cleaner world is reflected in our ambition to drive the transformation towards a low-emission energy system and optimal resource efficiency. We have made it our mission to engage our customers and society at large to help us drive this change.

Fortum as a responsible and sustainable investment

How we act responsibly

The entire energy sector is undergoing a transformation. Four megatrends are shaping this change: climate change and resource efficiency, urbanisation, digitalisation and new technologies, and active customers. These megatrends have a major impact on how energy is produced, sold and consumed.

Our role is to accelerate this change by reshaping the energy system, improving resource efficiency and by providing smart solutions. We want to offer long-term value for our stakeholders as well as take responsibility for our supply chain. We understand that satisfied customers are key to our success.

Our values – curiosity, responsibility, integrity and respect – form the foundation for all our activities. We emphasise operational and occupational safety, employee well-being, the secure energy supply for customers, creating sustainable solutions for cities, as well as ethical business operations and compliance with regulations.

Our aim is to provide our customers with environmentally friendly products and services. We strive to continuously reduce the environmental impact of our operations and while reliably providing our customers with the electricity and heat they need.


Key focus areas

With the help of our stakeholders, we have defined these issues as our key sustainability topics. These issues have the biggest impact on the environment and Fortum, and the company's ability to create value for stakeholders.
