A resource-efficient city with no waste, no emissions and no over-consumption? By 2050 Lappeenranta aims to be just that.

Building on an already 38 % reduction in CO2 emissions from 1990, Lappeenranta uses large-scale renewables like wind, solar, biomass and heat pumps as well as addressing energy consumption patterns, to put sustainable wellbeing at the heart of everything the city does.

WHY WE LOVE CITIES

With over 3.5 billion people living in them, cities have a big climate footprint. But they’ve got an even bigger opportunity to create better places to live and a healthier planet in the process. Through better transport, green buildings, harnessing the power of nature, wasting less and loving more, cities can lead the way to a climate-friendly future.
