We at Visit Turku aim to encourage our partner companies to develop their own practices toward the achievement of certification in sustainable tourism. As a tourist destination, Turku views the sustainable certification as of critical importance to tourism operators in the area.

Here we explain the meanings of the three sustainability labels which you can find on our website.

Sustainable Travel Finland

Created by Visit Finland, the Sustainable Travel Finland label brings together existing sustainable tourism certificates, such as the EcoCompass or the Nordic Swan Ecolabel. You can be assured that a destination or company with a Sustainable Travel Finland label is on the planet’s side. The Sustainable Travel Finland programme encourages Finnish tourism companies and destinations to embrace more sustainable practices.
