Measures to mitigate CO2 emissions are customized for each city. In Lahti, sustainable transportation and energy consumption are particularly important. With the Climate Campaigners app, every resident of Lahti plays for the environment and speeds up the city’s climate work. Lahti is aiming for climate neutrality in 2025.
