We care about the environment

Energy producers try hard to make their production operations more environmentally friendly and use more renewable sources. Eesti Energia has set itself the same strategic goals.

We received recognition for building an underground sediment pool to the Estonia mine and finding opportunities for using the by-product of large-scale energy production - oil shale ash - in agriculture and road construction.
