Environment.fi helps you to make environmentally sustainable decisions
On the environment.fi website is published information that helps and encourages us Finns to make environmentally sustainable decisions and to act in an environmentally friendly way. We make these decisions not only in our everyday life, but also in the role of an employee and a decision-maker.
Monitor the water situation and anticipate risks
Will a flood drench your basement, is there blue-green algae in the water or do you have enough water in your well? Monitoring supports preparedness for extreme weather phenomena, such as floods and droughts. In winter, snow load monitoring and ice and soil frost situation monitoring are also available. You can also share your observations in the waterinfo.fi service.
Let’s put a stop to littering
Everyone can contribute to reduction of littering in simple ways. Sort garbage in the bin and collect litter from the environment. However, citizens’ actions alone are not enough, since litter also ends up into the environment from various sources: different stages of waste management, construction sites, fields, ports – in other words, wherever people, activities and materials meet.
Tiny steps towards sustainable life
Everyday life can be made meaningful when one strives to realise oneself, share what one has and promote the common good. Climate change, overconsumption of natural resources, loss of nature and other sustainability problems can be overcome together.
Contribute to the well-being of waters
Finland is one of the most water-rich countries in the world and our waterways are in fairly good condition. However, water pollution and climate change are also problems for us. Among other things, droughts and algae blooms are increasing. Our consumption also saps the water resources of other countries. With your own actions, you can reduce water eutrophication, chemical loads, and other impacts of your water use.
Natura 2000 areas in Finland
The European Union aims to halt the loss of biodiversity throughout its territory. One of the most important means to achieve this goal is the Natura 2000 network. Natura protection areas in Finland covers around five million hectares.
