Sustainability criteria

Think Sustainably service is based on criteria tailored to Tampere, which have been developed in cooperation with the incubator Demos Helsinki and local experts and stakeholders. Criteria include energy, food and service, and social sustainability, among others.

In addition to taking energy and water consumption into account, plant-based food and using eco-labeled products are part of sustainable accommodation.

Sustainable attractions pay attention to energy consumption and waste reduction. Climate-friendly food options and accessibility also make a difference.

A sustainable event is accessible for all. Environmental sustainability is taken into account in recycling and energy saving, as well as by encouraging guests to arrive by public transport.

Restaurants, cafés and bars
In the restaurant industry, vegetarian options and paying attention to food waste are signs of sustainability. Locally produced food and decreasing packaging waste also matter.

Recycled materials and offering used products are ways to reduce the carbon footprint. A sustainable production chain considers the product life cycle from start to finish.

Energy consumption, using renewable energy and considering sustainability in catering and materials play a key role in the sustainability of venues.
