Helsinki’s vibrant and characterful nightlife has a huge variety for all tastes, where everyone can revel and relax in the Finnish capital freely, no matter how they choose to wind down and cut loose. Of course, everyone has to consider their own responsibility, but different bars, pubs and clubs put a lot of effort into creating a shared experience for all to enjoy.
How a venue treats their staff, balances their energy consumption, and reduces their waste are all important considerations for establishments serious about sustainability and improving the capital’s wellbeing when off the clock.
Here's a selection of bars, clubs & pubs that have met the Think Sustainably criteria. When browsing MyHelsinki.fi, you'll always spot sustainable choices by their green tab.
Think Sustainably - what's that?
The Think Sustainably service helps everyone to choose more responsible ways of living in Helsinki, as well as enjoy the city on a sustainable holiday. It filters content from the MyHelsinki.fi website to suggest sustainable services, such as restaurants, shops, sights, events and accommodation. At the base of the service are tailor-made criteria for the city of Helsinki that have been developed together with the independent think tank Demos Helsinki, along with local interest groups and sustainability experts. The service is one example of Helsinki's commitment to promoting a more sustainable way of life - for everyone.
