Veho is a pioneer in creating more sustainable mobility and actively seeking opportunities to generate mobility-related services more economically,” says Veho's CFO Anssi Räsänen.

At the same time, we have been able to provide our customers with significant operational efficiency and meet the sustainability requirements set by Veho for their business,” says Head of division Finland of Caverion, Ville Tamminen.
