About Kaisa
I am a 45-year-old experienced leader, mum/stepmum of three kids and city council member from Arabianranta, Helsinki.
I work at Business Finland as Senior Director, Public Affairs and Communication. Previously I have worked as an entrepreneur for a long time and in several positions to do with cleantech, climate and energy policy issues. I have also made angel investments in several cleantech startups.

In the Green party I have been chairman of the Green Party council in 2017–19, as family leave substitute for the Green Party’s secretary general during autum and winter 2017–18 and as chair of the Helsinki Green city council group as well as member of the Helsinki city board in 2019.

Both at work and in politics my main goal is to fight climate change. I want to significantly increase the ambition level of climate policy both in Finland and the EU and create an encouraging environment for the creation of climate-friendly business solutions. I am also passionate about equality issues and improving conditions for entrepreneurship.
