Vapo Group operates in Finland, Sweden and Estonia. We focus on growing and recycling, the production of solid fuels, heating, electricity and steam as well as the provision of various energy solutions. We also develop new products from peat and other natural materials.

Vapo Group reorganised its operations effective from 1 May 2018. As before, the Group’s parent company is Vapo Oy, but the Group’s operations are now managed under a divisional structure instead of country-specific companies. The structural reforms did not affect the company’s legal structure. Daily operations and customer relationships remain unchanged.

The structural reforms saw the Group’s business operations divided into the Energy division, the Grow & Care division and the New Businesses division. Shared services used by all three business divisions, such as peat production in various countries, logistics services and procurement, are provided by a separate Supply Chain Management function. In addition, the Group’s parent company is responsible for producing Group services. We employ now some 700 people in Finland, Sweden and Estonia.
