What was your most important project or event in your career (at ÅF)?
We are currently working with a really interesting, though, a classified project. Our projects in the private sector are classified, but often dealing with issues that are of interest to the media due to impacts on the energy market and a close relationship with political decision making. Meeting and working with others from the international offices of ÅF is always rewarding.
What is your dream assignment?
The dream assignment would be complex, topical and strategically important to a client and dealing with something that has not been done before.
How do you create solutions that are profitable, safe and sustainable for our clients?
With a lot of analytical work, co-operation with relevant people and by applying second opinions where needed. Our clientele, such as the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, share ÅF's views on sustainability, so it already is a 'must have' in projects from the start. Many of the sustainability solutions depend on the country where the project is. For example, we have delivered projects to promote investments in biomass fired energy production and efficient district heating in the Eastern European countries.
Who is Leena in her private life?
Above all a family person.
