Down a Degree – Finnish Customs

Finnish Customs is participating in the Down a Degree energy saving campaign. The goal of the campaign is to have at least 95 per cent of Finns to take action to save energy, and to achieve a permanent decrease in energy consumption in the long term.

Participating in the campaign is a real way to promote social responsibility, as well as Finnish Customs’ goal of being an environmental responsibility pioneer in public administration.

We are committed to the following action during the upcoming heating period: 

  • We will implement the EcoCompass environmental system.
  • We will participate in the Senate Properties’ energy savings program, reducing the temperatures of our office facilities. 
  • We encourage more than 2,000 Finnish Customs’ employees to save energy, even with small acts, whether at our facilities, remote work, at home or in traffic, and to share their energy saving tips with others. 
  • We will also favour public transport and carpooling for any business travel. We encourage all Finnish Customs’ employees with cars to drive economically.
