Towards carbon neutrality. Together
Joensuu is a city of some 76,000 inhabitants in eastern Finland. Joensuu has set the ambitious goal of being carbon-neutral by 2025.
Carbon neutrality means that Joensuu will only produce emissions that are equal or lower than the amount that can be captured in carbon sinks. The remaining emissions are compensated for or captured in carbon sinks, for example by planting forest or restoring mires. The City of Joensuu aims for carbon neutrality in order to mitigate climate change.
We encourage, support and inspire companies and organisations to achieve common climate goals. Taking climate action is a common effort for the city group, its enterprises and residents. Individual acts matter, but so does common intent.
On this site, we present the climate actions we do in Joensuu.
