With a population of 120,000, Lahti is a growing, vibrant city where environmental choices are made every day. The Finnish city combines the best of both worlds: a magnificent lake scenery, diverse nature and originality of a small town, yet the public transport, energy solutions and cleantech business opportunities of a major city.

The City of Lahti has a vision to thrive internationally as a bold environmental city for people and businesses. The strategic environmental targets of Lahti are:

  • To cut the CO2 emissions into half from 1990 level by 2025
  • To be a climate neutral and resilient city by 2040
  • To be a waste-free and complete circular economy city by 2050
  • To protect nature and valuable freshwater and groundwater resources
  • To increase all sustainable urban mobility modes: walking, cycling, public transportation

In 2016, Lahti also joined the Finnish Sustainable Communities Network and committed to working towards becoming carbon neutral and waste-free, and curbing over-consumption by 2050.
