Sustainability is a cultural cornerstone in Finland. Thus when it comes to offering hotels, apartments, cabins and other accommodation, there’s a wide range of responsible choices available.
The field of accommodation services has been paying attention to energy and water consumption for years. Next steps include expanding the availability of vegan foods, as well as promoting public transportation.
Here's a selection of accommodation options 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.
