Pekka Reinikainen joins Gaia as Senior Advisor and brings in expertise in risk management, a crucial skill for businesses and organisations in the fast-changing world.

In February Kemira published its new 2030 target and set their ambition to be carbon neutral by 2045. The target was based on a very rigorous assessment of options and assessing the costs and benefits of each.

To find out what lies behind the targets we asked Kemira’s Sustainability Director Rasmus Valanko how the project was carried out.
