The Baltic Sea needs companies

Our Baltic Sea is highly eutrophic and needs your immediate help. Global warming accelerates the changes occurring in the Baltic Sea and leads to the need for quick action. Our marine cultural heritage is in danger of disappearing.

The Baltic Sea can be saved with successful and focused measures. Put your company in the key role. Take the Baltic Sea into account in your business actions, donate and become a supporter of the John Nurminen Foundation.

John Nurminen Foundation – Baltic Sea protection and marine culture
Founded in 1992, the purpose of the John Nurminen Foundation is to save the Baltic Sea and its heritage to future generations. The Foundation has been awarded for its work as a communicator of information and producer of marine content. The goal of the Foundation’s Clean Baltic Sea projects is to improve the condition of the Baltic Sea with tangible measures that will reduce the load and environmental risks directed at the sea. Our work is steered by measurable results and impact.

At Orion, responsibility means action

Supporting the operations of the John Nurminen Foundation is in many ways a natural part of a company’s environmental responsibility and responsibility communications. The Finnish pharmaceutical company Orion Oyj is one of the Foundation’s main cooperation partners for the third year in a row.

“The well-being of the Baltic Sea and environment is important to Orion, and for years, our efforts towards protecting the environment have exceeded what is required by the legislation,” says Orion CEO Timo Lappalainen.

For example, Orion has managed to reduce the pharmaceutical residues discharged into water bodies to a minimum, since the majority of the wastewater is directed, based on the risk, to evaporation and the residue is incinerated. Energy efficiency has also been improved and several energy-saving measures have been implemented successfully.

Environmental responsibility does not only concern Orion’s own production; it is present throughout the medicines’ lifecycles. The environmental risks of new products are assessed, the raw materials are procured from responsible suppliers, the packaging sizes of medicines are designed according to their intended use and the packaging materials are continuously developed to be more ecological. Noora Paronen, Head of Corporate Responsibility at Orion, emphasises that, for Orion, taking care of the environment is a continuous process supplemented by campaigns and donations for the Baltic Sea.

“We cannot solve all of the challenges by ourselves. Cooperation between the stakeholders is also required and can be achieved by, for example, participating in the projects of the John Nurminen Foundation,” says Paronen.



Hurrikaanit helps the Baltic Sea

The environmental management company Hurrikaanit is a partner of the John Nurminen Foundation in the conservation of the Baltic Sea.

“The John Nurminen Foundation is known for its considerable efforts to save the Baltic Sea. Through its operations, the Foundation has achieved good, concrete results and brought both countries and operators of different industries together. The Foundation is active and has a clear goal. The mission of Hurrikaanit and the objective of the Foundation support each other, which made the decision to join the Baltic Sea conservation forces easy,” says Karo Heino, Chair of the Hurrikaanit Board of Directors.

Hurrikaanit is a Finnish family business whose operations include the emptying of grease, sand and oil separators and waste wells as well as taking care of sanitary services at events and on construction sites. The company delivers daily wet waste to waste and water treatment plants. Karo Heino, Chair of the Hurrikaanit Board of Directors, why is the conservation of the Baltic Sea and its legacy important to the environmental maintenance company Hurrikaanit?

“We have had, as environmental maintenance professionals, parents and grandparents, a very close view of what is happening to our environment and the Baltic Sea. We are concerned. The Baltic Sea now needs concrete actions and help from all of us for all future generations to have the opportunity to enjoy a sea that is not only close but clean as well,” Karo explains.
