Climate action in Tampere

Vuolteentori on a beautiful summer day.

Global warming is a global crisis. Approximately 80% of energy and natural resources are consumed in cities. In their everyday work, cities constantly make decisions that either increase or reduce emissions.

The city has the responsibility of mitigating global warming and safeguarding its citizens and society from the detrimental impacts of climate change. The city wants to enable a smooth and sustainable everyday life for all its residents.

Tampere aims to be carbon neutral by 2030. To achieve this goal, we must decrease emissions caused by mobility, construction, housing, energy consumption and overall consumption. The city’s climate actions have been compiled into the Climate Neutral Tampere 2030 Roadmap.

Climate change mitigation and adapting and preparing for its impacts require a significant change in the operating culture. The city cannot achieve its goals without the participation of its residents, companies and communities. With the help of the Development Programme for Carbon Neutral Actions (2022–2025), the city is looking for ways to support residents and companies in creating a sustainable lifestyle. No one can do everything, but everyone can do something.

Ensuring biodiversity is also an important part of climate work. The LUMO programme promotes biodiversity in Tampere. 


Climate and Environmental Policy Unit prepares, coordinates and monitors the implementation of the City's environmental and climate policy guidelines. The unit produces information that supports operations and offers tools for climate action.
