Housing and environment

The City of Rauma is part of the Hinku network that brings together municipalities, businesses, citizens, and experts to create and carry out solutions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The municipalities involved are committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions more extensively and rapidly than EU targets require. The network aims to create solutions that have economic and social benefits as well as environmental advantages. Some Finnish regions are also involved in the Hinku network. The network is coordinated by the Finnish Environment Institute (SYKE).

The municipalities in the network are committed to an 80% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from 2007 levels by 2030.
