- Share of renewable electricity out of Group’s total electricity consumption

- Group’s personnel’s average annual sick leave days

Terra Patris Oy is a Finnish family-owned company with subsidiaries in leisure marine industry, construction equipment industry, contract manufacturing and in forestry industry.

Turkka Hirvonen, CEO of Terra Patris group:

Sustainability is increasingly important for our industrial clients and other stakeholders. Linking loan margin to our sustainability targets gives us further incentives and discipline – we are happy to have also financiers as our sustainability stakeholders. Nordhaven’s advice from the project launch to final execution was highly value-adding and we are grateful for their thorough support.
