Donation to the Natural Heritage Foundation from Visoko

Donation to the Natural Heritage Foundation from Visoko


Visoko directs 5% of its e-commerce purchases for the year to the Natural Heritage Foundations. For 2022, it was decided to allocate this donation to the Finnish Natural Heritage Foundation's Activist Granny Grandma's Forest.

"Activist Grannies supports the conservation activities of the Natural Heritage Foundation by campaigning for grandma's forest. The aim is to use the funds raised to establish protected granny forests, which, with their stories, inspire more and more people and generations to work long-term for the benefit of our forests. Protected forests provide an important opportunity for recreation and hiking for grannies, grandchildren and anyone interested. As they grow, forests sequester carbon in their trunks and root system and act as a carbon sink. Old primary forests are important carbon stores, maintainers of diverse nature and our common valuable heritage." -Natural Heritage Foundation
The image is associated with the campaign.

In Visoko, it is believed that through the manifestation of aesthetics and a deeper connection with nature, a stronger will to protect nature and the climate awakens in humans. Take your grandchildren or child friends to the forest and it will be your best climate action ever. Let the child experience and sense the enchantment of the forest firsthand. Visoko supports generational work.

Visoko's customers can participate in supporting the diverse nature by purchasing the Silence products of the online store. The object is confirmed annually.

A look back at 2022

The founder of Visoko, Vuokko Isokorpi, sees bright opportunities in the future. Companies need a variety of help in promoting their sustainability work. Legislation supports Visoko's work. From 2023 onwards, the reform of EU legislation and ever-tightening regulations will be a lifeline for all companies to reflect responsibility through documentation and reporting. 99% of unlisted companies lack these measures. Micro and SME companies also need sparring and expert advice. Visoko meets this need. In the Ely development project, the chief consultant of Vision Factory stated that Visoko has already managed to attract positive attention in the market at an early stage and a need that has been realized through real calls for tender. Visoko has started to develop quality and customer experience in the early stages. Visoko also relies on digitalization and the power of collaboration.

The operating environment is challenging, but despite the situations, Visoko has strengthened its competitive position. Although turnover remained low, cooperation channels were increased, the company was developed and its competitiveness was strengthened. Good cooperation has developed with e.g. Hiilipörssi, Vision Factory and Metodix. The entire period of Visoko's existence has been marked by the challenges of the operating environment, first by the pandemic, then by the fears and effects reflected from the war in Ukraine, the rise in energy and prices, and the cyclical downturn. These issues have affected the operating environment of companies and delayed their investment decisions.

Development and cooperation to increase competitiveness

Visoko's ELY development project and customer piloting projects resulted in digital concepts for responsibility, sustainable development and foresight. This pilot phase, which lasted more than a year, ended in September 2022.
Throughout its entire operating period, Visoko has invested heavily in developing the quality of services and, through customer pilots, in developing the functionality of its concepts. Strong professionals Vision Factory and Methodix co-developed digital, online consulting concepts. The ELY project ended with good development results, and several companies of different sizes from different industries were involved in the pilot tender rounds.

In 2021, Visoko received Business Finland's Innovation Voucher and, as a result of its development, opened the of the website, Visoko's online store and courses in the spring of 2022. This development work continues, for example, in the development of the online store's meditative Silence series products, i.e. various nature trail videos, see here brochure.

The founder of Visoko, Vuokko Isokorpi, is currently surveying the willingness to buy a part or entity of the business. The listing can be found on the Company Exchange. For more information, please ask A responsible and growth-oriented company is suitable as a buyer of the property, and the concepts fit strategically into the service package.

EcoCompass certificate for Visoko 2022

The EcoCompass certificate is proof of the organisation's efforts to achieve its own environmental responsibility. The certificate is granted when the company has built the EcoCompass environmental management system and passed an audit by an independent expert. The audit assesses whether the organisation's environmental responsibility work meets the 10 criteria set by the EcoCompass.

The certificate is a means of verifying the level of environmental responsibility of an organization not only for the organization's partners and customers, but also for its own employees. The EcoCompass certificate is also a valued means of verifying the level of environmental responsibility in various tendering processes. Anu Hakala, EcoCompass auditor, Environmental Specialist, from the Helsinki Metropolitan Area Recycling Centre, says about Visoko's strengths in environmental matters:

"The company's mission is at the core of environmental responsibility work. Vuokko has long and extensive experience and know-how. Despite this, he has the will to learn more and more and be curious about everything new. Vuokko and Visoko operate flexibly and agilely. The world is a better place thanks to Vuokko and Visoko."

STF certificate for Visoko 2022

Visoko started familiarising itself with Visit Finland's STF programme in 2021, with the aim of obtaining an STF certificate. It was preceded by the Stairs of Responsible Tourism, Geopark Ranger training, Lauhanvuori-Hämeenkangas UNESCO Geopark corporate membership and the EcoCompass eco-label. Visit Finland aims to make Finland a leader in sustainable tourism by 2025. This goal is supported by the Sustainable Travel Finland programme. It is a tool for developing responsibility, but also a message to international and domestic tourists that the company operates in accordance with the principles of sustainable and responsible tourism. Visokon Green Care Luontovoima nature services is committed to the principles of sustainable tourism. It directs 5% of its e-commerce sales to charity. In 2022, the project will be the Natural Heritage Foundation.

Visoko's value proposition:

"We are on the side of nature and cherish the principles of sustainable development. According to this principle, we give more to nature than we take from it. We want to leave future generations with nature and habitats as valuable or more valuable than we have received. With its own example, value chains and cooperation, Visoko takes into account the prevention of biodiversity loss. Biodiversity and supporting it are values that Visoko will not compromise on." 

Visoko warmly thanks its customers, partners and organizations for all their interactions and the cooperation of the past year.

Cooperation with Visoko

Visoko is looking for a partner or cooperation

Visoko has aroused interest in the market and needs additional resources to meet the needs of the next few years and the tightening of legislation on corporate responsibility. Visoko is looking for a shareholder for cooperation, with a party interested in consulting or other possibilities for consolidation.

Alternatively, Visoko seeks boosters and growth by combining the work with a responsible, suitable operator for Visoko's management consulting. If your customers are asking for corporate responsibility, sustainability and future-proofing services, please contact us. Let's discuss what pooling resources could mean for your customers.

What kind of party is suitable for the shareholding or cooperation

Do you want to become a shareholder in the growing sustainability industry?

Do your customers ask your company for sustainability services? Visoko wants to negotiate a shareholding, cooperation and investment in Visoko's business with you. For example, you can be a financial, IT, technology, consulting, training or communications company.

Visoko is a growth-oriented Startup that has been operating for almost two years and has a scalable, innovative and international growth market potential business. Visoko specialises in combining sustainable finance and ecological environmental consulting to bring benefits to companies through consulting, mentoring and training. The methods have been created to be digital, agile and scalable.

What a shareholder or partner company benefits from

Together, we can bring added value to our customers and an increasingly customer-oriented service chain. The shareholder has the opportunity to benefit from the development work already done.

Operators are needed in the sector, as the need for services will increase with future legislation. The legislative amendment supports the business activities of sustainability consulting. Different tools are needed: sparring, surveys, analyses, reports, sustainability roadmaps, visual visibility and communication.

Visoko wants to rise to the challenge and help SMEs in these matters – in cooperation with a suitable party. Anticipation makes sense for companies. In the coming years, the market will need specialised, scalable and competent cost-effective service providers.

Future legislative amendment

Sustainable finance, taxonomy and the tightening EU Corporate Responsibility Act will be extended to more than 50000 companies in the EU in terms of mandatory reporting – now only 11000 report on sustainability. SMEs will follow large companies in value chains. In this case, the need for sustainability services increases. Anticipating the situation gives companies that have invested in sustainability a cost benefit and an advantage. Responsibility is no longer a choice for companies, but a lifeline.

Why Visoko is a good partner

Visoko is a value-based company that reliably does what it sets out to do. Visoko invests in quality and listening to customers, reacting agilely to changing needs.

Visoko has started out as a pioneer, because legislation has not yet guided the work. The attention of companies has been on the challenges of the pandemic, the situation in Ukraine, the energy crisis and cyclical situations. So far, there is little competition in the market, because legislation has only forced large companies to move. Visoko's special expertise is in sustainable finance and ecological environmental consultation.

Visoko has developed its concept into practice with pilot customers and strong partner companies Vision Factory and Metodix. With the help of ELY development and bank funding, Visoko carried out an extensive 1.5-year development project. In Business Finland's Innovation Project, Visoko set out to promote innovative ecological and visionary activities that strongly take into account nature and environmental values, for example, through its online courses.

Through development, productization and business service design, a toolkit for sustainable well-being, development, financing, investment and anticipation of the future was created tailored to the needs of customers.

By expanding the share base or through an acquisition, Visoko is seeking a strong competitive position, growth opportunities and resourcing in the market. A company that enters into cooperation gets a reliable operator who has invested in development work as a partner.

Change from Visoko

Visoko's website is of high quality, including the English version. The company logo is protected by an EU trade mark. The certificate and responsibility programme, as well as references and marketing channels, can be found on the website. Marketing has been actively done on several social media channels. The company has a blog. Business processes are documented, protected and intellectual property protected by trademarks. There is no tax debt and the company and the owner have a good reputation and several references. Visoko has extensive networks and corporate partners, so extensive assignments are possible.

Currently, Visoko is working on EcoCompass and STF certification with the aim of getting both in 2022. Visoko already has the Green Care Luontovoima quality label.

Values lead the entrepreneur in the direction of nature and well-being

Visoko's values include acting with respect, benevolence, courage and transparency. Visoko is a pioneer in strategic change management, sustainable well-being and sector renewal. The founder of Visoko has a goal to narrow down and clarify what he does. The purchase of the entire sustainability business is negotiable, as is the current owner's contribution to it.

The values lead the founder's entrepreneurial direction more and more towards renewal and, in particular, attention to nature, nature health and well-being. With the shareholding or sale, the goal is to separate operations in terms of management consulting and nature-based services.

Management consulting requires resources to be successful. Shareholdings, venture capital and cooperation would be a natural continuation of improving competitiveness and good development work.

Connection to nature is the key to comprehensive well-being and the cornerstone of Visoko's operations.

Young people have a future

Young people have a future

Young people in particular are concerned about the state of the planet and nature. So Visoko likes to listen to what young people think and
what to do about things:

• People need to be motivated to think
• Environmental laws are coming!
• Not all companies have the capacity to
• A greener future
• Nature does not need us, we need nature to live

Design Sprint, organized by the Circular Economy Goes East and West project of Laurea's young students, culminated in presentations of service concepts in June. Laurea's service design students developed a Better Future game and several other innovative ideas for Visoko's needs, which Visoko can use in the future to help its customers.

Visoko and Laurea in cooperation

The goal of a sustainable development game or tool is to familiarise the customer with the UN's 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development Goals.

From Visoko's point of view, the cooperation involved assignment, the transfer of material related to blanks, interviews, exchange of ideas, the provision of answers to questions and the transfer of the necessary expertise to young people. To the young people's credit, they were eager to take up the project and were able to ask the right questions so that they could move forward in their work. They had a lot of insight and visions for the future. All four teams created the best ideas around sustainable development goals (SDG). Every blank is exportable to practice. The Design Sprint event was accompanied by presentations, best practice choices and competition on a tight schedule.

All the performances had made efforts as teams and brought out the business corners. What do companies need in this particular market and what are they willing to buy? Sometimes the simplest version is the most productive. Only the testing that has been put into practice to customers can ultimately prove that it works.

How to clarify the customer path?

Visoko can help its customers and provide a tool for promoting sustainability to raise awareness and information, in a fun and easy form. The digital format can attract customers of different ages and types and be positively surprising. At the same time, it will benefit other stakeholders. The gamified method of sustainable development can potentially be used in Visoko's online courses, trainings and workshops by linking to them. A visual, gamified and playful way can lighten the mood in an otherwise demanding topic. It can also motivate you to internalize the importance of SDG goals in practice.

Asking questions and giving answers is particularly suitable for Visoko's operating model. Visoko is of the opinion that, in order to see change, one must have the courage to ask questions and question questions.

Cooperation is the key to change

The cooperation left a positive vibe. This way is the right way to get topical and functional ideas launched into the business world. Visoko recommends cooperation and co-creation experiences with Laurea to other companies.

In addition to cooperation, perspectives of different ages and a diverse range of perspectives are needed in order to change things and enable sustainability and long life cycles. Cooperation with young people is a start where fresh perspectives are obtained. Young people are interested in what the world will look like in five years and 25 years' time.
And what will the world and nature look like in 60 years' time in the lives of grandchildren?

Exposure to nature pays off!

Black swan surprises and teaches

Black swan surprises and teaches

Nature survives without man, but man can't survive without nature.

The Black Swan has arrived again

It came uninvited, unpredictably, unsolicited – a global Covid-19 virus that spreads in various variants and is potentially the new normal in western countries as well. The situation and controls will be tackled through the actions of governments. The economy will fall first until market rates quickly load up expectations of the future. Some industries benefit, for some the situation is disastrous.

Is this going to be the new normal and which way it's going to go? Are responsibility, humanity and communality increasing in a changed operating environment?  The earth's intermediate figure has accelerated to 7.7 billion and we are constantly spending its resources unsustainably. Climate change, the depletion of natural resources and the loss of biodiversity are the greatest global threats of our time. For the above reason, nature and the globe can be considered as important stakeholders for companies. Future generations and nature are now waiting for the debt to be repaid.

Black swans among us

Black swans do not arrive in vain in the lives of people and nations, but always have some important message to bring. In decision-making, the possibility of the appearance of the "Black Swan" is often ignored. The black swan is a metaphor that means a surprising event with a wide impact that was not believed to be possible. Trends breakages are then always big surprises. Our state decision-makers also often act as if black swans did not exist. Black swans are major disasters or other significant and surprising twists that cut the flow to events considered normal. Examples include the collapse of the Soviet Union, the stock market crashes, the spread of the Internet, the attack on the Twin Towers of New York, the tsunami in the Pacific Ocean and now the Covid pandemic are black swans.

Anticipation of the future is the insurance of companies for the future

How can companies prepare for black swans or nasty surprises? By taking out insurance? A private person can take out insurance for a fire. The company's way of putting out fires is a way not only to convince a valuable business, but also to anticipate the future. In addition to research use, the Delfoi future method is suitable as an organizational development tool, which is used, for example, in the strategy work of a company or organisation, in monitoring the operating environment, in anticipating a company or industry, or in participatory decision-making, for example. It enables the company to continuously and systematically strive to improve its operations and anticipate its operating environment.

How to anticipate the future

A study on future foresight has been carried out in Visoko; Strong environmental values and a connection to sustainable business. Learn more about what findings a company can anticipate in its own company, industry, operating environment the following twelve themes and prepare for the future in its operations.

Will climate change and the protection of nature finally be taken into account? Climate change is real and we are living with its criticality and urgency. They're looking for a nature connection again. Is deepening the nature connection perhaps the key to revising values? The black swan brought a valuable message. Shall we accept it? It's time to get down to business.
