End customers Business partners Municipalities Investors Other stakeholders Top 80 Finnish cleantech companies Media Decision makers We connect clients and partners with top cleantech expertise



Global cleantech market is worth approx. EUR 2000 billion Expected to grow to EUR 4000 billion by 2025 Average annual growth since 2007 12 % Source of competiti- veness & growth for companies in a wide range of sectors

GROWTH DRIVERS Industriali- zation • Developing economies face consequences of outsourcing Urbanization • Traffic congestion, air & water pollution, heating, waste  problems need to be solved Regulation • Tighter regulation opens up opportunities for European companies

CASE: CHINA Major environmental problems Ambitious emission reduction targets + big budgets Beautiful Beijing – platform for Finnish-Chinese cleantech collaboration • Energy production & distribution • Buildings & construction • Traffic & transportation • Industry • Air quality monitoring & analysis

EMISSIONS SOURCES IN BEIJING 5,2 milj. Cars, annual registerations growing 20 % Buildings under construction around 180m m2 (2011) Total energy consumption around 490 TWh/a, around 1,7 x whole Finland (2011) Heating energy by district heating (DH) 99 TWh/a (in Helsinki around 35 TWh/a)’ Lenght of DH network 12 000 km Coal consumption around 23 m tonnes /a

BEIJING TARGETS Chinese Central Government will invest in air quality improvement about 1 trillion RMB (125 billion EUR) by 2020 Beijing has the numerical target to reduce emissions by 2 % (SO2, Nox, COD, NH3-N) and used 760 million EUR for energy efficiency and environmental protection just in 2013 For example coal boilers of 44 000 old residences and all coal boilers in central area residence will be replaced Beijing has decided to cut coal consumption from 23.3 million tons in 2012 to 15 million tons (- 35 %) in 2015


HOWE RANK INTERNATIONALLY #1 EU Eco-innovation scoreboard 2012 #2 Environmental friendliness, Country Brand Index 2011 – 2012 #4 Global Cleantech Index

Finland has a harsh climate with extreme temperature variations and no natural fossil fuels of its own. We have had no choice but to develop efficient methods and alternative energy sources. It’s cold (and hot) out here

It wasn’t always this clean here Finland is rich in natural resources, such as forests, lakes and minerals. In the past we have had problems, including water pollution and low air quality. With persistent long-term efforts and public-private- sector collaboration we have succeeded in protecting our nature – and building cutting-edge expertise in solving environmental problems.

We invest heavily in cleantech Despite its small size as a country, Finland is a cleantech superpower. Finland’s share of the global GDP is approximately 0.4 %, but our share of the global cleantech market is over 1 %. More than than 1/3 of Finnish public R&D investments are made in cleantech.
