Fortum is a leading clean-energy company developing and offering solutions for our customers in electricity, heating, cooling, as well as solutions to improve resource efficiency. We also provide services for the power generation industry and solutions for consumers so that they can be smarter in their energy choices.
Our mission is to engage our customers and society to drive the change towards a cleaner world. Our role is to accelerate this change by reshaping the energy system, improving resource efficiency and providing smart solutions.
Our vision for a cleaner world is well aligned with the spirit of Committed. It encompasses what we want to achieve but also the direction of our effort. It is our responsibility but also the proactive mindset we have when faced by global megatrends such as climate change, urbanisation, digitalisation and new technologies.
Climate change is a serious concern for everyone, and the impact of global warming is transforming our environment unless we take immediate action. There must be a steep reduction in greenhouse gas emissions in order to keep the global temperature increase below 1,5 degrees.
However, we have a positive outlook on the future. At Fortum, climate change was identified early on as a megatrend and the focus on reducing CO2 emissions has been in Fortum's DNA for decades. For Fortum climate change is both a challenge and an opportunity. Getting towards a low-emission energy system and replacing fossil fuels in traffic, industry, heating and cooling, creates new business opportunities. Sometimes it requires challenging conventions and pushing boundaries, but we are ready for it.
Working in collaboration with other Committed members we can make the change happen and also create new business opportunities for everyone. We believe in doing things together, to build trust, and to co-create. That is the reason we wanted to start Committed.
