Our vision “For a cleaner world” reflects our ambition to drive the transformation towards an low-emission energy system and optimal resource efficiency. Our mission is to engage our customers and society to drive the change towards a cleaner world. 
In India, Fortum’s immediate priority is solar energy production, which is in line with the Indian government’s focus to promote renewable energy sources. 
Fortum opened its office in India in September 2012 to assess growth opportunities in the Indian energy market. The office is located in Gurgaon, in the National Capital Territory of Delhi.
In June 2013 Fortum acquired a 5 MW solar power plant in the state of Rajasthan, north-western India. It further strengthened its solar portfolio in December 2014 when its 10 MW solar PV plant was connected to the grid in Madhya Pradesh. The plant was formally inaugurated on 20 January 2015 as the first project to be commissioned under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM) Phase II Batch I.
In January 2016 Fortum won auction for a 70 MW project at Bhadla solar park in Rajasthan and in April 2016 won an additional 100 MW at Pavagada solar park in Karnataka.
