Helsinki is aiming for carbon neutrality by 2035. As a responsible company, Messukeskus wants to work for the benefit of its hometown and is committed to reducing its carbon footprint as part of the Climate Partners network of the city of Helsinki and the business community.

We help to choose more responsibly

Messukeskus works actively as part of the City of Helsinki’s Choose more responsibly network.
