Sustainability policies in
Green Cap Tours
1. Environmental management and accountability
Sustainability in mind, we strive to deliver our services with the lowest possible emission while respecting local, everyday life and culture. We regulate the group sizes and routes of our guided tours in order to avoid congestion and noise in the visiting sites. Likewise, our products pricing is transparent and we pay employees a fair remuneration for their work.
We strive for continuous improvement in our environmental work and therefore we have public environmental objectives with a target timetable and announced responsible person. These objectives are stated on this page further down. Realization of our environmental objectives are measured quarterly and reported publicly yearly.
2. Employee engagement
Sustainability issues are discussed in all staff meetings during which personnel are invited to provide feedback and ideas on how to streamline and develop activities. Similarly, staff can influence the content of the list of recommendations we hand out to our customers.
3. Customer Engagement
We make guide tours mainly on foot, allowing us to produce our services in a zero-emission manner. This also activates our customers towards a healthy, active lifestyle. In addition, we also empahasize sustainable local customs such as drinking the tab water. Likewise, we recommend sustainable local events, destinations, restaurants and shopping destinations to our customers.
4. Environmental (Nature) activities
We recommend a variety of natural attractions for self-guided hiking and outdoor activities. For example, the “With metro to a forest”-style Kivinokka recreational area, Central Park for cycling and Nuuksio for independent all-day excursions.
2. Publicly announced, annual sustainablity goals
We strive continuously to improve our operations. Therefore, realization of these goals will show us ho well we are doing. The CEO of Green Cap Tours is responsible of carrying out measures to ensure fullfilling these goals.
