The goal of the Foundation, established in 2005 by Ponsse Plc’s founder and industrial counsellor Einari Vidgrén, is to increase appreciation for the work done in the field of mechanised harvesting and the responsible activities carried out in the forest industry in line with the principles of sustainable development. The foundation seeks to increase awareness of mechanical harvesting entrepreneurship and its attractiveness as a form of employment, especially among young people.
