Makers of Good Life
FCG Finnish Consulting Group Oy perceives the future as already being on the design table and competes with sustainable quality.
The FCG service palette consists of infra, environmental and urban planning, training in various fields, development of public services and management consulting. Their operations span from Finland to about 30 other countries.
– Our strengths include local knowledge, extensive expertise and comprehensive service: we influence many sectors of society. Hence, we are able to offer complete solutions instead of individual deeds, says Pauli Santala, Head of Urbanisation and Regional Vitality Competence Group.
The key themes in the company's operations are sustainable communities, energy, environment and clean water. FCG also has a wide range of services related to circular economy. Sustainability principles are taken into account in projects from the start, and the customer is offered long-lasting solutions.
– We do not offer disposable services for money. Instead, we strive to provide quality and wide-ranging expertise into matters of design, in order to make society work in an environmentally friendly manner, Santala describes.
– In Finland, customers of FCG include companies, as well as public sector actors such as the state, cities and municipalities. The operations are led from Lappeenranta.
Lappeenranta is an interesting place for us, particularly because of the university. Collaboration between companies, the university and the city is going particularly well. In addition, we have strong economic development, an extensive knowledge-based hub of environmental matters and big industries here. Here we have an opportunity to grow.
FCG brings the expertise and networks of a national operator to the Greenreality network.
– We bring with us all-around environmental thinking and all the services of the organisation, that is, we also bring in the expertise that is not found in this area, Santala says.
