The objective of the Helsinki City is to make Helsinki carbon-neutral by 2035. This goal will be achieved by reducing the greenhouse gas emissions in Helsinki by 80 per cent. The remaining 20 per cent will be compensated for by Helsinki taking care of implementing emissions reductions outside the city.

To meet the carbon-neutrality objective for 2035, the use of fossil fuels needs to be reduced in Helen’s heating production. Helen Ltd’s objective is to stop using coal entirely in the 2030s, at the latest.
