Finland’s untouched and pristine nature is at the core of Finnish life and its sanctity is paramount for Finns and visitors. Living sustainably and in harmony with the environment is deep-rooted here and is an essential element of responsible meetings and events.

Visit Finland has developed the Sustainable Travel Finland (STF) programme to help the travel & meetings industry in Finland to adopt sustainable practices. The programme is designed for companies and destinations to develop more sustainable practices. The idea of ​​Sustainable Travel Finland programme is to provide suppliers with a sustainable development path; a concrete toolkit that makes it easier to adopt sustainable practices and choices in everyday business.
