Finland 100Metso joins the celebration for Finland’s centenary
We are donating EUR 1 million to Finnish universities, with a particular objective of promoting the development of technological education as well as scientific research and its application in practice. The radical changes brought about by digitalization and the related opportunities, as well as new technologies, provide us with versatile tools for building a more sustainable future for all of us.
We want to promote innovation and choices in the industry so that natural resources can be utilized more and more responsibly. It is important to understand how minerals and the process industry are connected to the construction of modern society and how the circular economy works. The new permanent exhibition showcases the role of industry, technical innovations and accumulated knowledge as building blocks of the modern society. Together, we can contribute to the responsible use of natural resources, e.g. by minimizing the amount of water and energy required to utilize them.
We support the work to protect the Saimaa ringed seal in cooperation with WWF Finland, and we promote the improvement of the state of the Baltic Sea through the John Nurminen Foundation. While these sponsorship targets are essentially Finnish in nature, they are also very topical on the global scale. An endangered species, the Saimaa ringed seal is only found in Finland. Clean water is a critical factor for the future of humankind and all living things.
