Responsibility shows on every Fingrid employee’s desk
For us, responsibility is a team effort, which requires the commitment of the entire personnel and the participation of our business partners. In addition to our own operations, we conducted dozens of audits to ensure the sustainability of our work sites and procurements.
Our expert personnel work for the clean energy system of the future.
Safety at Fingrid’s work sites is observed to provide information on latent hazards and to be able to mobilise the entire personnel to improve safety at work. Nearly 600 safety observations were reported on Fingrid work sites in 2019.
Battling climate change
During the year, Fingrid concluded agreements on connecting a total of approximately 2,000 megawatts of wind power production to the electricity grid. These investments will help indirectly avoid emissions worth some 1.1 million carbon dioxide equivalent tonnes in the coming years.
“We are one of the key players in Finland’s energy and climate policy, as the transmission grid under Fingrid’s responsibility must be sufficient to enable Finland to reach its climate goals. We must succeed in connecting clean power to the main grid and also ensure its secure transmission from electricity producers to consumers.”
Materials from work sites are recycled as efficiently as possible when building new grid sections and substations or dismantling old structures. The total volume of waste in 2019 was approximately 13,920 tonnes, of which 98 per cent was utilised in some way and 89 per cent was recycled.
