Sustainability Morning

Sustainability Morning Tuesday 24.8.2021

Welcome to follow our event and hear current topics about Sustainability in Business!

Sustainability is in the core of everything we do at Greenstep. The health and safety of our customers and peers are in our top priorities. Therefore, to our great disappointment, the current Covid-19 situation does not allow us to arrange our Sustainability Morning as a live event. Therefore we have reshaped and shortened the program and the event will be held as webcast only. There will be an opportunity for virtual discussions via chat. At the same time, we sincerely hope that we will have an opportunity to organize live events in the near future.


Sustainability in the current world is a cornerstone of the long-term success of any company. It is an integral part of the corporate strategy, planning and performance measurements of today’s frontrunner companies. Companies that excel in corporate responsibility can turn it into their competitive advantage. This will help them to improve their financial performance and reputation as well as increase the ability to hire the best talent.

First on stage, we will see Fortum’s newly appointed SVP (Corporate Affairs, Safety and Sustainability), Nebahat Albayrak. She will be followed by a seasoned communications and sustainability veteran, Arja Suominen. The final speaker will be a well-known visionary thinker Anssi Vanjoki. In addition, Greenstep’s Sustainability Officer, Ella Tanskanen and Chairman of the Board, Tore Teir will share Greenstep’s journey of sustainability.
