Join us in celebration of Espoo’s  EU Climate Mission Label on 28.5.2024!

Two years ago, several Finnish cities were accepted to European Commission’s mission of 100 climate-neutral and smart cities. Now five Finnish cities have been awarded with Mission Label for outstanding climate efforts and solid plan to achieve climate-neutrality by 2030.  

The EU Mission Label represents a significant milestone in Espoo’s journey towards carbon neutrality, facilitating access to public and private funding to support ambitious climate initiatives. Looking ahead, the European Commission’s continued support, including financial advisory services and the establishment of the “Cities Mission Capital Hub,” will further empower Espoo and other awarded cities to translate their climate strategies into tangible projects with lasting impact.
