Environmentally responsible enterprises and events
The City of Helsinki encourages enterprises to enhance environmental responsibility in their operations.
The City of Helsinki Environment Centre oversees that enterprises fulfil their legally mandated environmental responsibilities and supports enterprises to bear environmental responsibility beyond the legal mandate on voluntary basis.
Helsinki supports voluntary, environmentally responsible business operations. For example, Helsinki has developed tools for small and medium-sized enterprises that improve their environmental management and resource efficiency.
The environmental impact of events comes from increased transportation and traffic, sound amplification, catering and procurement. The environmental impact can be minimized with operational revisions.
