Ecobuild 2014: energy efficiency offers business opportunities in Finland

Invest in Finland is participating in the Ecobuild 2014 trade fair in London on 4-6 March. Ecobuild 2014 is the world's leading event for sustainable design, construction, energy and the built environment in Europe.

Finland attracts interest from UK companies

New construction in Helsinki will bring opportunities to British companies, according to Kevin McCafferty, Senior Market Advisor at UK Trade and Investment, who visited Invest in Finland’s stand at Ecobuild 2014. “We are looking for sectors where Finnish and British know-how and expertise complement each other in the sustainable construction sector. There is a lot of interest from the UK towards Finland, for example among design and technology providers,” says McCafferty.

The UK is also an interesting market from the Finnish perspective, according to Hanna Lankinen, Senior Director, Business Development, Invest in Finland. Other interesting markets include German-speaking Europe, Russia and Sweden.
