The carbon footprint is calculated by IHME eco-coordinator, whose tasks are to calculate IHME Helsinki’s climate emissions and to seek less-impactful alternatives for e.g. heat and electricity as well as business travels. We in IHME also want to encourage other cultural-sector actors to find out the environmental impacts of their operations and to share tips on reducing them.
