Welcome to the Sustainable Event Alliance (SEA), an association which aims to inspire events, organisers, venues and supply chain to be as sustainable as possible and to establish Finland as a sustainable event destination.

The Sustainable Event Alliance helps to resource those who wish to expand their current sustainability practice, or those who are at the start of their journey, to improved sustainability performance.

We encourage all sectors of the industry to play their part in Finland being recognised as a sustainable event destination.

SEA's Sustainability Roadmaps help events and venues navigate towards improved sustainability performance. Suppliers and temporary food traders can also undergo a checklist process to assess their performance and let us know their sustainability credentials.

Rather than have a country representative in Finland, we defer to the Helsinki based sustainable event organisation Greening Events.

Greening Events - is joint venture of Helsinki, Espoo and Vantaa cities (27.2.2012-30.6.2014). The project aims to develop concrete ways to develop the environmental management in events in the metropolitan area. The project will establish practice supporting action model that will support voluntary environmental work between cities and events. Tailor-made environmental consulting and counseling will also be provided. The project is coordinated by the City of Helsinki Environment Centre.
