Environmental responsibility

The Port of Helsinki operates at the meeting point of the marine environment and the city. We want to take responsibility for the environment and take it into account in everything we do. The Port of Helsinki sets annual environmental objectives and monitors their realisation.

All harbours in Helsinki have environmental permits, which steer their operations, in accordance with the Environmental Protection Act. The permits regulate noise and emissions levels and waste management, and they define the obligations to report on and monitor the environmental impacts of operations.

We engage in active cooperation in environmental matters with both Finnish and international partners. Together we achieve results that are both better and more comprehensive from an environmental perspective!

The Port has a certified operating system that fulfils the requirements of standards ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001.

All harbours in Helsinki have valid environmental permits in accordance with the Environmental Protection Act. These regulate matters such as noise and emissions levels from port operations, as well as waste management.
