Information on topical issues at Fortum.
To prevent the worst impacts of climate change, we need to remove more CO2 from the atmosphere than we are releasing. As a complementary tool to actual emissions reductions, carbon removal is essential for reaching the 1.5-degree target set out in the Paris Agreement.
Fortum – A Clean Energy Architect for Data Centres
Our mission is to move towards a cleaner world, together. Advancing digitalisation and reducing emissions from energy production are big steps towards this goal. That’s why we want to enable new data centres to be located in the Nordic countries.
Wind and solar in Russia
We have announced plans to further expand our wind and solar power production in Russia. The plans are in line with Fortum's overall target of creating a multi-gigawatt wind and solar portfolio.
Fortum's operations in India
Fortum's operations in India are focused on solar power. We have four solar power plants in India: Amrit, Kapeli, Bhadla and Pavagada. We have also agreed with NBCC on developing electric vehicle charging infrastructure across India, and have some R&D projects going on.
Research and innovations for a cleaner world
The purpose of Fortum's research and innovations activities is to improve Fortum's competitiveness and to create a basis for new profitable businesses.
Fortum and e-mobility
We believe that the electrification of transportation is one of the most effective ways to reduce carbon dioxide emissions.
Fortum and coal
The use of coal in energy production needs to be discontinued and we are working towards that. And in places where we still use coal, we do so efficiently and responsibly.
