Iilaakso Oy: Low carbon solutions for household consumption

Iilaakso helps Muhos, Pyhäjärvi and Tyrnävä to promote the introduction of low-carbon solutions for consumers in living, eating, waste management, services and goods, through their own experience.

Iilaakso has contributed to the significant efforts of the municipality of Ii to reduce CO2 emissions. Work has been done with the municipality as well as with the inhabitants. The project utilizes the results of the ongoing Sitra-funded consumer project, which can be replicated and utilized in other municipalities. The HINKU municipalities (Ii, Tyrnävä, Muhos and Pyhäjärvi) in Northern Ostrobothnia spread these practices in a smart way in their own area by taking local considerations into account.

In this project, sustainable everyday experiments will be directed, for example, to increasing the use of renewable energy and improving the energy efficiency of homes.

Municipalities will name a person who locally implements and introduces new ways to promote low carbon solutions. The ideas of each municipality are shared openly in order to spread knowledge about the success of different methods. The role of Iilaakso is to encourage and tell about their own experiences, but the municipalities can implement their ideas independently.
