Environmental responsibility comes first

Fingrid always strives to take environmental factors into consideration responsibly and to communicate openly about matters related to them. The company occasionally has to apply to the ELY Centre for permission to deviate from the prohibition on deterioration and destruction of threatened and protected species in accordance with Nature Conservation Act. However, applying for a special permit is always the last alternative.
