Workplace menu on sustainable lifestyles
Workplace menu on sustainable lifestyles offers a variety of actions for creating and enabling sustainable lifestyles. It is aimed at people working with companies and organisations who are open and willing to demonstrate and incentivise sustainable lifestyles and need guidance along the way.

Workplaces have an important role in supporting and motivating their employees and customers towards sustainable lifestyles.

This event is organised by The Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra and Climate Leadership Coalition (CLC). In this event you will also hear what CLC member organisations are doing in order to catalyze this change. And if you are hungry for more, you can share your work in progress with others and get their support.
