Marja Ollila

Sustainability Specialist

As Castrén & Snellman’s sustainability specialist, my job is to help ensure that our sustainability work meets the high standards required from a forerunner in the legal services business. I see to our firm’s sustainability reporting and climate work, including carbon footprinting and emission reduction targets. I support our HR department in social responsibility work, such as monitoring our human rights impacts. An important part of my work is assisting our lawyers in incorporating sustainability considerations into their legal advice.

I began my working life in the corporate sustainability function of a Finnish technology firm, focusing on climate topics. I then followed my passion for languages working as a translator at Castrén & Snellman’s Translation Service for roughly a decade before returning to sustainability. I am also the translator into Finnish of several non-fiction books dealing with economics and the economy. This work has left me with an interest in the distribution of income and capital in its many forms.

I hold a M.Sc. (Tech.) in environmental management from the Helsinki University of Technology and a MA degree in French philology from the University of Helsinki.
