Helsinki promotes sustainable consumption
Think Sustainably by Helsinki Marketing provides a service that makes it easier for locals and visitors to choose sustainable ways of enjoying the city, while also encouraging service providers to develop their offerings more sustainably.
The service filters content from MyHelsinki.fi, the consumeroriented website of Helsinki Marketing, and suggests sustainable services, such as restaurants, shops, sights, events and accommodation.
The base of the service is tailor-made criteria, developed in collaboration with think tank Demos Helsinki together with local interest groups and sustainability experts. Service providers are then responsible themselves for evaluating their service according to the criteria. If they meet the minimum requirements, their service can be classified as a sustainable choice on the portal. Furthermore, customers and visitors can also give feedback on the services via the portal.
