Environmental policy

Helsinki City Council approved the City of Helsinki environmental policy at the Council meeting on 26 September 2012.

The goals of the City of Helsinki environmental policy have been set both for the long term to 2050 and for the medium term to 2020. The goals fall into eight categories, which are the following:

  • Climate protection
  • Air protection
  • Noise control
  • Protection of the sea and water bodies
  • Nature and soil conservation
  • Procurement, waste and materials efficiency
  • Environmental awareness and responsibility
  • Environmental management and partnerships

The environmental policy is part of the City of Helsinki environmental management, and it complements the environmental guidelines of the City of Helsinki Strategy.

The main channels to implement the environmental policy are the programmes for the sub-categories of environmental protection (including the air protection programme and noise control action plan) as well as the environmental systems and programmes of various administrative bodies.

Environmental policy is being updated at the moment.
