The year 2020 was one of active development for Metsähallitus
Last year saw a reshaping of Metsähallitus’ strategy and brand, effective work to preserve biodiversity and mitigate climate change, and the expansion of wind power project development to sea areas. Due to the coronavirus epidemic, the number of visitors to National Park and the sale of hunting and fishing licenses grew significantly.
Guidelines Concerning Coronavirus COVID-19
Because of the coronavirus, safe distances should be kept even in nature, and thorough hand hygiene should be followed. Metsähallitus’ policies and guidelines will be updated according to the general corona guidelines.
Metsähallitus submitted a planning proposal for the offshore wind farm to the municipality of Korsnäs
Finland is making an effort to become the world’s first fossil free welfare society by 2035. Metsähallitus plays an important role in achieving this goal as it is possible to build a significant number of wind power plants in state-owned areas that it manages; the energy produced in these power plants would reduce the need for fossil fuels. The Korsnäs project is Metsähallitus’ first own offshore wind park project.
