Aalto EE helps your organization build a sustainable enterprise by developing the capabilities and competencies needed to create a sustainability strategy, ensure green growth, and build sustainability into daily operations.
The green transition means a shift towards economically sustainable growth and an economy not based on fossil fuels and overconsumption of natural resources. A sustainable economy relies on low-carbon solutions that promote the circular economy and biodiversity. It is the most significant systemic change of our time. Every organization must undergo a sustainable transformation to speed up the green transition.
For companies, the manufacturing industry, and municipalities, the green transition can mean investments in clean energy production, circular economy solutions, hydrogen technology, and introducing new services and operating models. Low-carbon roadmaps and sustainability strategies drawn up by different sectors are important to this package. (Finnish Ministry of Environment)
