Climate Climate

The City of Oulu has actively carried out climate policy since the 1990's. Over the years, issues related to the climate have been closely connected to practical measures, such as the joint production of electricity and heat, the collection and utilisation of landfill gas, and the extensive cycling route network.

According to the climate strategy of the Oulu region, adopted in 2009, the City of Oulu is committed to doing its bit to slow down climate change by permanently cutting down greenhouse gas emissions.

The City of Oulu first signed the Covenant of Mayors in 2011. It then pledged to curb its greenhouse gas emissions by a total of 20% by 2020. The new Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy was signed in 2016 with a pledge to cut greenhouse gas emission by 40 % by 2030.
