Fortum Corporation Press release 15.4.2009

New sustainability targets for Fortum´s car fleet                               

Fortum has decided on new stricter targets for its car fleet. As of April 1st   
2009, the CO2 emission limit for Fortum's company benefit cars is lowered from  
200 g/km to 180 g/km. The aim is to reduce the limit further to reach the level 
of 150 g/km in 2012.                                                            

Particle filters become obligatory for all new diesel cars in the fleet. Each   
company car driver is also obliged to participate in Ecodriving training. The   
car manufacturers of the makes available to Fortum are also required a long term
commitment to sustainability.                                                   

During the next few years Fortum's aim is to introduce a significant number of  
plug-in hybrid and electric cars into the car fleet. Electrifying the road      
transport is a growing sustainability-driven global trend and Fortum is         
determined to be an enabler of a smooth transition.                             

Two pilot projects are currently ongoing in Stockholm, Sweden and Espoo, Finland
aiming at finding smart and efficient recharging solutions. They are needed to  
enable a rapid penetration of plug-in vehicles when car manufacturers bring them
to the mass market in 2010-12.                                                  

Already in 2007, as one of the first companies in the Nordic area, Fortum       
decided on a CO2-emission limit for company benefit cars. The limit was a       
maximum value and, in accordance with Fortum's sustainability policy, employees 
have been encouraged to select the most low-emitting cars. As a result, the     
average emission from the company car fleet has gone down by 15 g/km in two     

Fortum's vision is to excel in sustainability and ultimately become a CO2-free  
power and heat company. The new sustainability targets complement Fortum's      
various activities to reduce its carbon footprint. Fortum has set strict targets
for its CO2 emissions from electricity and heat production in Europe. Other     
targets include reducing CO2 emissions from air travel by 10% and offsetting the
carbon dioxide emissions resulting from the remaining air travel. Several       
actions relate to saving energy and greening the offices.
