The city of Helsinki recently introduced an admirable and inspirational project Think Sustainably committed to promoting a more sustainable way of life and enjoying the city – for everyone. Helsinki aims to reduce emissions by 60% and be carbon neutral by 2030. This is a shift that requires both major structural changes and everyday actions.
How does it work? The Think Sustainably service filters content from the My Helsinki website to suggest sustainable services, such as restaurants, shops, sights, events and accommodation. It also includes courses to learn the basics of sustainable development concepts.

In June 2019, a pilot service offering a limited number of operators was launched. It will, however, be further developed to include a variety of sustainable choices from restaurants to mobility. The city of Helsinki hopes to encourage different operators to find an impressive array of solutions that encourage customers and visitors to engage in more sustainable lifestyles.
