Towards carbon-neutral society
As one of Finland’s biggest energy companies, we have a responsibility to lead the way to a carbon-neutral future. We produce about a fifth of all the electricity generated in Finland. We are already a long way on the journey: already 97% of our electricity production and 80% of our heat production is carbon neutral.
Climate change is a global challenge, and we at Pohjolan Voima are committed to tackling this. Reducing carbon dioxide emissions is also important to our customers – export companies, energy companies and cities. With carbon neutral energy production, we play our part in helping our customers act responsibly and enhance their competitiveness. We’re proud of this.
We aim at 99% carbon neutral electricity production and 85% carbon neutral heat production in 2025.
The big picture in energy production
We’re moving towards a carbon-neutral society and cleaner world with determination and one step at a time. Energy production should be seen as a whole, where the right decisions have to be made at the right time. The transition period can be facilitated with the help of systematic and forward-looking political decisions that encourage companies to make bold long-term investments.
In recent years, we have made many decisions that have increased our CO2-neutral energy production. Our carbon neutral electricity production methods include nuclear power and hydropower, as well as electricity produced with wood-based fuels and recyled biofuels in our thermal power plants.
We’re proud to say that our decisions have paid off: already 97% of all electricity we produce is already CO2 neutral. 80% of the heat we produced was carbon neutral in 2022. But this isn’t enough yet.
