City of Turku – Climate plan by Santtu Hulkkonen

The city of Turku´s climate plan is well thought and key areas covered, where the city can have a direct impact. Measuring and communicating the progress also makes the plan more tangible and exciting. It is important that the city leads by example, however, I would like to see similar strong commitments from the major private companies and industry for such ambitious targets. Another small concern is that Turku is a famous tourist destination and lots of passenger and cargo traffic is passing by the city. One should also consider how to reduce the emissions generated by the travel connected with the city.
