Track how Helsinki is tackling climate change
WHAT? The City of Helsinki takes its responsibility to mitigate climate change seriously. We have committed to 147 different climate change-related tasks that aim to make the capital carbon-neutral by the year 2035. The web tool Helsingin ilmastovahti (‘Helsinki’s Climate Watch’ in English) tracks the progress of our actions.
WHO? The climate change crisis is expanding at an alarming rate, but there’s still hope if we act quickly. Ilmastovahti is an online service for people who want to monitor the steps the City of Helsinki is taking to fight this threat.
WHY? The tool helps interested parties track the City of Helsinki’s efforts to reduce harmful emissions, with dedicated pages listing the details of every operational, tactical and strategic task towards this effort. The service also provides the background information and calculations utilised in the assessment of emission levels.
WHEN? The Climate Watch web tool was launched in Finnish in 2019. The site will be updated continuously, in line with action plan progress.
