Winland policy brief

Winland released a new policy brief titled “Riskienhallinta, kestävyys ja vastuullisuus –  Yritysten arvoketjut energia-, ruoka- ja vesiturvallisuuden ytimessä” (Risk management, sustainability and accountability – Firm’s value chains in regard to energy, food and water security) – a set of recommendations for Finnish companies to achieve better sustainability in their entrepreneurial activity.

What do global crises of energy, food and water mean to Finnish companies? Our latest policy brief for companies was released in the morning seminar on June 14th.
Firm’s value chains are the most important structures for energy, food and water production and consumption. Risk management, sustainability and accountability of value chains should be seen as an inseparable part of each other and a prerequisite for continuity management.

A Co-Creation Pocket-guide (yhteisluomisen taskuopas) for researchers and companies was recently published by the Research Services of the University of Helsinki. Co-creation is a new way of doing research and development work, when companies and researchers share knowledge and perspectives with each other.

The guide names Winland project as one of examples of co-creation. Sakari Höysniemi, researcher from our team involved in Winland project, says that during the cooperation with big companies like Fingrid and Helen, through co-creation they have built an understanding of how to prepare for the trends and risks in the energy sector.
