We are the first in Finland to calculate and compensate for the emissions caused by overnight accommodation.
As the first accommodation provider in Finland, Hostel Domus Academica has initiated calculations and compensation for the carbon footprint caused by overnight accommodation.
The emissions caused by our accommodation operations during the summer will be compensated for by purchasing so-called emissions reductions. For 2014, we purchased emissions reductions certified by the Gold Standard supported by the WWF, which were created in a Chinese wind power project.
The project implemented with emission compensation funding compensates for energy production with fossil fuels, and thereby concretely reduces global greenhouse emissions.
