Ranked the most innovative region in the EU by the European Commission, Finland’s capital has a reputation for experimenting with sustainable policies and initiatives. Its latest initiative gives power to its users to make simple, sustainable decisions. Other cities should take note.
In a 2018 survey conducted by the City of Helsinki, two thirds of its residents identified the climate crisis as their major concern for the city’s future.
Less than a year later, the City responded with Think Sustainably, a program that provides residents, visitors and business owners with practical tools to make more sustainable lifestyle and business decisions.
People can search services such as restaurants, shops, events, experiences and accommodation on the City’s official website, and easily see how each stacks up sustainably.
