They have also been compensating their carbon footprint since 2013 by installing Noxite roofing, which uses a sustainable construction technology that helps to depollute the air. Tampere Hall was the first congress centre to be awarded the Nordic Ecolable, and has recently started heavily investing in solar power.

The air quality and water quality in lakes and rivers have improved over the long term. Nature conservation is also making good progress, thanks to a conservation programme, and areas with contaminated soil have been cleansed. Tampere has adopted an urban runoff programme to improve the processing of rain and meltwater. The amount of mixed waste has been decreasing all through the 2000s while the amount of biowaste has increased, which is an indication of improved sorting. Tampere’s nature conservation programme for 2012–2020 has contributed to the establishment of new nature conservation areas. The programme lists 67 nature conservation sites, covering 923 hectares
