Want to discover Helsinki's sights but at the same time be responsible about your actions? You're in good hands, because the Finnish capital takes sustainability seriously - and has plenty of attractions to enjoy.

There is a good chance  you will end up sightseeing in Helsinki in a responsible way without even realising. The choices in the city are abundant, and many different kinds of organisations pay a lot of attention to all things sustainable.

In terms of attractions, one important point to consider is how an attraction consumes the energy, along with how visitors are able to arrive. The steps toward sustainability can be different for very different types of attractions.

Here's a selection of attractions 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.
