Environmental responsibility

Energy production unavoidably has some effect on the environment. We minimise the environmetal impact of our operations through high-quality procedures, efficient power production and the use of renewable sources of energy.

Merikoski fishway

The Merikoski fishway, a well-known and popular landmark in Oulu, provides a path for fish to swim upriver from the sea past the Merikoski hydro power plant.

Environmental investments

The most important environmental actions are investments made to production systems that improve the treatment of flue gases, decrease dust emissions and make heat recovery more efficient.

Environmental and quality management systems

Certified quality, environmental and safety management systems used in different divisions of the group guarantee constant development and improvement of our operations.

Impact on the environment

The principal environmental impacts of energy production are waste and emissions to air and water. Sourcing of fuels may also have impact on nature's biodiversity.
