Espoo is the most sustainable city in Europe measured by economic, sociocultural and ecological sustainability scores. Espoo is the second largest and one of the fastest growing cities in Finland. As a part of the Helsinki Metropolitan Area, Espoo offers endless opportunities for investors and companies, which can benefit from the city’s active investment in the already highly developed infrastructure, including extending the metro network from Helsinki to Espoo.

The West Metro is the largest infrastructure project in Finland, and it connects the metropolitan area together. The new metro line is planned to be open for traffic in Autumn 2017. The key growth and development areas in Finland will be found along this western leg of the metro system – there will be great locations for companies to locate and invest in.
