Harsh climate and a lack of fossil fuel resources has forced our industry and society to minimise energy consumption and to innovate. Now Finland is a leading cleantech country.
Finland is rich in natural resources, such as forests, lakes and minerals. In the past we have had problems, including water pollution and low air quality.
With persistent long-term efforts and public-private-sector collaboration we have succeeded in protecting our nature – and building cutting-edge expertise in solving environmental problems.
