The air quality and water quality in lakes and rivers have improved over the long term. Nature conservation is also making good progress, thanks to a conservation programme, and areas with contaminated soil have been cleansed. Tampere has adopted an urban runoff programme to improve the processing of rain and meltwater. The amount of mixed waste has been decreasing all through the 2000s while the amount of biowaste has increased, which is an indication of improved sorting. Tampere’s nature conservation programme for 2012–2020 has contributed to the establishment of new nature conservation areas. The programme lists 67 nature conservation sites, covering 923 hectares
Finland's leading congress centre, Tampere Hall, uses the cool water of the Tammerkoski rapids that run through the city for cooling in the summer. They have also been compensating their carbon footprint since 2013 by installing Noxite roofing, which uses a sustainable construction technology that helps to depollute the air. Tampere Hall was the first congress centre to be awarded the Nordic Ecolable, and has recently started heavily investing in solar power.
In 2016 Tampere has been chosen the Bicycle city of the year in Finland, and the local authorities are planning more sustainable modes of public transport for the future. It has been decided that a tram line will be built in Tampere. Building will start in March 2017, and the tram will be in use by 2021.

About the Global Destination Sustainability Movement

The Global Destination Sustainability Movement (GDSM) brings together the sustainability pioneers of the business and leisure tourism world, working with destinations to co-create their tourism and events strategies, benchmark and improve their sustainability performance and transform value chains in order to catalyse regeneration.

Our purpose is to engage, inspire and enable the business events and tourism industry to become more sustainable and regenerative.
