Preparations for future growth are starting to take shape; by divesting the electricity distribution business gives Fortum better opportunities to focus on the production and sales of efficient and low-carbon electricity and heat. In addition, it increases Fortum's strategic freedom to develop the company, both in terms of the near future and long-term, in order to improving earnings per share growth and shareholdervalue.
Fortum’s purpose is to create energy that improves life for present and future generations. We provide sustainable solutions for society and deliver excellent value to our shareholders.
At the core of Fortum’s strategy is our strong expertise in CO2-free hydro and nuclear power and in efficient combined heat and power (CHP) production. Our strengths also include our solid experience in operating in the energy markets. We will continue developing our business through these competencies.
Sustainability is an integral part of Fortum’s strategy. The tight link between business operations and corporate responsibility underscores the importance of sustainability as a competitive advantage. In its operations, Fortum gives balanced consideration to economic, social and environmental responsibility.
Fortum’s values – accountability, creativity, respect and honesty – form the foundation for our activities. We want to be a forerunner in developing the future energy system – the Solar Economy.
