Sustainability programme and reports

Sustainability as a basis of our operations

Sustainability is an integral part of Elenia’s operations and services. It is also essential for our task of ensuring the smooth running of daily life in society. The main objectives of our strategy include earning our customers’ trust, ensuring efficient operations, renewing the electricity market, and the mitigation of climate change. These are the cornerstones of our sustainability programme, and they link it directly to our strategy.

In recent years, we have taken significant steps to further develop our approach to sustainability. Elenia’s sustainability programme guides our day-to-day work together with our business strategy. Elenia has scored five stars in the GRESB – Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark assessment for a four years in a row. In 2021 we sharpened our sustainability programme and targets. We have also committed to the climate targets based on scienctific facts.
