Welcome Aura Koikkalainen, our first ESG & Financial Consultant!

Aura Koikkalainen joined NIS in January as ESG & Financial Consultant, being our first official sustainability-related addition to the team. In her previous positions she has gained experience from different controlling areas – ESG, business and financial. Aura has, inter alia, worked with management reporting, budgeting & forecasting, margin calculations, cash management, monthly closing and external reporting (IFRS).

Aura’s own initiative passion towards the topic brought her to work with corporate sustainability alongside financial tasks. She has chaired ESG Risk Group, implemented SaaS for ESG metrics and developed both internal and external sustainability reporting. In addition, she has studied the development of sustainability legislation and different frameworks (CSRD, GRI) in Aalto University’s research projects.

She considers herself to be a goal-oriented and curious individual, whose strengths lie especially in development projects. With capabilities to understand efficiently the bigger picture, she has successfully managed to streamline and develop processes and work methods. With strong interpersonal skills and a can-do-attitude she is a trusted team player, and always eager to share and bounce ideas with colleagues.

Outside business hours, you can find Aura either from the stables or from the forest accompanied by her two small dogs. As an outdoor enthusiast, in summertime she prefers sailing, fishing or hiking and during the winter she tires to spend time on skis as much as possible. The nature offers her a place to quiet down and gather energy – after loading batteries off radar she’ll always come back with a bunch of new ideas.

Feel free to contact us if your company's sustainability matters require an external evaluation!
