OUTOTEC OYJ PRESS RELEASE MAY 12, 2014 at 3:00 PM

Outotec and WWF in partnership to promote green economy in Finland

Outotec and WWF Finland have agreed on a partnership, which focuses on
promoting green economy and sustainable use of natural resources. This
co-operation concerns especially Finland, but Outotec has a goal to address
the same issues globally and thanks to technology innovations sustainability
has been at the core of Outotec's business for decades.

"Outotec wants to listen carefully to its stakeholders. We have stated that
the planet Earth is one of our stakeholders. WWF is an organization, which
can exceptionally well represent the voice of the Earth, with all the work
and research it is doing concerning the planetary boundaries. The
collaboration gives us the possibility to have a dialogue also with this
stakeholder", states Minna Aila, Senior Vice President - Marketing,
Communications&Corporate Responsibility.

As a part of the partnership Outotec and WWF will together organize a high
level national seminar on green economy and national implications of WWF's
Living Planet Report 2014 on November 25, 2014 in Helsinki. The seminar shall
be the kick-off for a series of round-table discussions of a working group
leading to enhanced understanding and more concrete proposals for
implementation of green economy in Finland. WWF will compile a study on the
best green economy practices from Finland and abroad to serve as a basis for
the round-table discussions.

"One of our strategic goals is to raise awareness among the Finnish political
decision makers and corporate executives of green economy, its boundaries and
possibilities to introduce concrete measures for promoting it in Finland. It
is delightful that Outotec cooperates with us in achieving this goal.
Companies which take this issue seriously will gain competitive advantage as
eventually entire business field needs to shift away from "business as usual"
type of action, the Earth simply cannot handle it", says Liisa Rohweder, CEO
at WWF Finland.

The partnership was initially made for three years and the forms of future
collaboration will be developed based on the experiences gained throughout
the program.
