Focus areas

We have structured our societal actions within the framework of a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Programme, which covers the initiatives undertaken by Fortum companies in their neighbouring communities worldwide. The programme's focus areas are Climate (environment and water), Material revolution (recycling and waste) and People (particular emphasis on youth, children and education).


In 2022, we continued to support our ongoing programmes in Finland, Sweden, Norway and India. Our programmes and support were especially targeted towards educational programmes for children.

In addition due to the devastating war in Ukraine we directed donations towards organizations helping the Ukrainian people.
