Helen has joined the Climate Leadership Council, which seeks sustainable solutions to global environmental challenges.

The Council aims to find solutions to challenges related to climate change and the sustainability of natural resources.

– At Helen, we have worked hard towards a carbon-neutral future. Membership in the Climate Leadership Council will provide us with better networks to continue this work, says Director Maiju Westergren.

Helen invests in renewable energy and distributed energy production. It aims to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 20 per cent on the 1990 level and to increase the share of renewable energy to 20 per cent.

Helen has introduced products that utilise renewable energy, such as designated panels at the Suvilahti and Kivikko solar power plants and renewable district heat. Helen offers its customers electricity produced with both wind and hydro power.

The increased interest of enterprises towards the mitigation of climate change is seen in the membership of the Climate Leadership Council, with the current number of members being 27. In addition to Helen, new members accepted in December were Huurre Group, Lassila & Tikanoja Oy and Oy SKF Ab. Other members include Finnair, Gasum, Fortum, Kone, and Ilmarinen.
