Everyone wants to save the world, but moving from words to deeds is difficult. So we at Lumme Energia have decided to do things a little differently. We take on challenges that are doable and perform local miracles – together.
Advising others to do better is easy, but sustainable change starts from within. We at Lumme Energia want to inspire others to make more sustainable life choices. To us, sustainability means more than just environmental action. It also means more vibrant cities, jobs, collaboration and wellbeing – a better everyday life for everyone.
We are participating in the Elinvoimainen järvilohi project, to save the critically endangered Saimaa landlocked salmon. Lumme Energia is the project’s largest individual sponsor.
Sports and culture enthusiasts are spending more and more time in clubs and events. We want to support this! Over the year, we will train 100 clubs and organisations to reduce their carbon footprint. Training will take place in club and events alongside local sports organisations.
The brown trout is a critically endangered migratory fish. We are sponsoring a project, coordinated by the local ELY Centre and Etelä-Savon kalatalouskeskus ry, for roe planting aimed at regenerating trout stocks on the Mäntyharju route. Our funds are being used to acquire brown trout roe and biodegradable roe planting boxes.
We are also supporting the restoration of urban rivers for fishing and recreational purposes through means such as trout roe planting.
EKOenergy is an international eco-label. Our EKOenergy utilises wood chips from forests and forestry by-products; even ash from wood burning is recovered. Ash is used as a forest fertiliser.
