What is Greenreality Network?

The network of green companies has the power

Greenreality Network is a business-oriented network of energy and environmental actors. It operates in South Karelia, Finland and creates growth and new business opportunities for its members and the region.

The network was established by local businesses in the energy and environmental industry, the city of Lappeenranta and Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT). The coordinator of the Greenreality Network is Wirma Lappeenranta.

Partners and visibility from a network

The companies within the network attend events together, jointly market their know-how and offer services for projects, and generate new business for the region. Wirma, LUT and the city of Lappeenranta also actively market the expertise found in the region and the network.

Active collaboration between the companies has brought new customers to the members, from both within and outside the network. Product development projects have been launched within the network, in addition to developing new products for the markets.

Companies obtain information on national and international projects and networks through the network’s members who operate in the public sector. As members of the network, enterprises have a better chance of getting involved in projects and undertakings and finding new partners, more easily. Through the network collaboration, companies have also found new markets for their products and services.

The members of the network also have a say in how the achievement of the Green Lappeenranta objectives, specified in the city of Lappeenranta’s strategy, can be promoted through the city’s investments and service acquisitions and priorities, based on their business potential. 

Business growth from university collaboration

The network's coach is LUT, which encourages network members to introduce new innovative solutions that, in addition to green values, include business potential and create new jobs. In short, the network wants to do good for all: the environment, people and businesses.
