A sustainable tomorrow depends on your vote

Politicians decide – one vote at a time – whether we live in a healthy world and sustainable society. Ordinary Finns, on the other hand, vote on who gets to decide on these matters. Voting for a politician who thinks sustainably may be your most important environmental choice.


Savings: Sustainable development is visible as large savings immediately, as well as long-term, when the environment and people are healthy.

Remember this: It may be difficult to know what a politician thinks about environmental issues without learning more about their ideas. A lack of interest in how our common affairs are managed leads to low voter turnout.

Reducing your carbon footprint: Voting for decision-makers who make sustainable choices reduces your carbon footprint by 2.5% per year. Emissions are lower when smart political choices lead to emissions reductions and a more resource-wise future.
