Building Wind Finland 2020 together with

Sustainability going forward – new speakers announced for Wind Finland 2024!

This year sustainability is at the core of the agenda of Finland’s biggest wind power seminar, Wind Finland, as four inspiring speakers will step on the stage of Kaapelitehdas on the 1st of October 2024 to tackle sustainability challenges and discuss the latest developments and regulations.

The name tells it; sustainability is going forward within the wind power industry – but what are the drivers and what does a company need to consider to tackle the increasing regulation? The players in the market are rapidly improving their game, and beyond the regulatory jungle, three themes raise their heads: CO2 impact, impact on nature, and supply chain management, including respecting human and labor rights.

This autumn, we’ll have Jenny-Li Holmström, the Legal Director & Head of ESG from Taaleri Energia Funds Management to give us an overview of where we stand in terms of ESG issues and what we can expect in the coming years regarding regulation and reporting. “When impact must be reported with increasing precision, and liability isn’t limited to your own actions, but also those of your supply chain players, the sustainability journey becomes everyone’s business”, describes Jenny-Li the importance of the matter.

As Jenny-Li will introduce us to the big picture, Lia Heasman, LL.D. ESG Counsel from Castrén & Snellman will dive deeper into the regulatory jungle: to meet the standards, what different players have to consider now, and what is coming up just around the corner?

Despite the vital importance of increasing renewables to combat climate change, there are also adverse impacts. As most of the adverse impact on the climate and biodiversity is caused before the construction even begins, we will also have Jenny-Li challenge the Finnish wind power market’s leading turbine manufacturers’ representatives Andrew B Harwell from Vestas Wind Systems A/S and Sandra Pfeiffer from Nordex SE on how sustainability can be improved in the value chain. Jenny-Li refers to the coming discussion that even though wind power is quickly offsetting its own emissions by displacing dirty electricity, there is still great potential in reducing the negative impacts of manufacturing and constructing renewables.
