Carnegie has recognized Kempower for its commitment to enabling and facilitating the charging of EVs, which contributes to climate change mitigation.

Commenting on receiving the Carnegie award, Tomi Ristimäki, CEO of Kempower, said:

Because sustainability is at the core of our business, I am delighted that Carnegie has rewarded our efforts and commitment. For me and all my colleagues, using our experience and understanding of DC charging systems to benefit the climate is a natural choice.”
Lena Österberg, Head of Sustainability Strategy and Advisory at Carnegie, added:
“Companies with ESG integrated into their business models and ambitious sustainability targets continue to capture investor interest. Several new regulations aiming for market transparency will impact investor decisions even more in the future and make companies like Kempower attractive investments.”
