Visit Tampere – sustainability and environmental policy
Visit Tampere Ltd’s sustainability and environmental policy is based on the Sustainable Tampere 2030 programme and its goals. We support the achievement of the Carbon Neutral Tampere 2030 goal with our operations. Our most significant opportunities to influence focus on consumer communication and the involvement and guidance of our stakeholders in developing the sustainability of our own operations. The companies, municipalities and educational institutions in our partnership network are the most important partners in our sustainability work.
Visit Tampere Ltd is committed to operating responsibly and in accordance with the principles of sustainable development, and we strive to take them into account in all areas of our operations. We are systematically improving the sustainability of our operations and acting as a leader for tourism operators and companies in the region. Sustainability is a key part of our strategy, and according to the Tampere region, we are taking us to the Sustainable Travel Finland destination programme coordinated by Visit Finland. In the future, Tampere will be known as one of the most responsible tourism, congress and event cities in the world. The eco-compass certificate and our environmental programme guide us in achieving these goals.
