In September, Fingrid arranged a climate-themed week for its personnel. Elina Hiltunen, Futurist, and Riku Lumiaro, Biodiversity Expert, visited to talk about climate change as a trend, the loss of biodiversity, and what climate action will be required to mitigate and halt the change.
The ENTSO-E 10 Years Conference, held in Helsinki, Finland, on 13th November 2019, takes a look at various issues affecting the European electricity transmission system operators (TSOs) now and in the future. ENTSO-E, the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity, represents 43 TSOs from 36 countries across Europe.
The Finnish authorities are forecasting and making preparation for the risks related to weather and climate conditions due to climate change. Fingrid is working closely with the authorities to ensure that electricity transmission continues uninterrupted, even in the event of extreme weather.
Stora Enso is one of the world’s largest operators in its industry, and it wants to be more than a forestry company. As a renewable material, wood offers solutions to the largest global challenges, such as climate change and increasing urbanisation.
Fingrid has committed to the United Nations’ Global Compact corporate responsibility initiative and to promoting its sustainable development goals. Responsibility has been a part of the transmission system operator’s values and operating methods for a long time. Now the UN’s global sustainable development goals have also been linked with Fingrid’s business targets.
