Helsinki, A Transforming METROPOLIS

Helsinki’s international ambition is very clear. We are convinced that the best way a city can serve its residents, companies and visitors is by providing the most progressive everyday life as a framework. We also believe that by offering a functional city infrastructure as a platform for companies, we are not only improving our own operations but also attract the freshest new ideas and greatest talents to Helsinki.

Helsinki is in the middle of a massive transformation that will totally rewrite the script for the metropolitan area. Many of Europe’s biggest urban development projects are underway in the area, which provides the perfect mix of economic, social and ecological sustainability.

Openness and transparency of business and administration is a key element in Finland, as well as for business opportunities. Our cities are design and technology-driven. Hierarchies are low, and institutions are accessible.

This transformation provides an excellent opportunity to drive forward ambitious climate actions aiming at carbon neutrality. Smart energy solutions, circular economy, innovations in public transportation and efficient use of digitalization are all important elements that will help us reach our target.

Helsinki wants to become the most attractive place for people and companies working for a better world. Our commitment is to do things a little better every day.

We welcome new partners near and far to building an even better Helsinki of the future.

Jan Vapaavuori
Mayor of Helsinki
