By committing to sustainability programmes, we are supported in developing sustainability and know with certainty that we are doing the right things. Below, we present the programmes to which Natura Viva is committed.
Sustainable Travel Finland
The idea behind the Sustainable Travel Finland label is to provide businesses and destinations with a concrete sustainable tourism toolkit to facilitate the adoption of sustainable measures and choices in the everyday life of a region or business.
The label has provided us with an excellent toolkit for developing sustainability-related issues. Our responsible person attends Sustainable Travel Finland's training courses every year.

A Green Key branded accommodation is committed to raising environmental awareness among staff and guests, improving energy and water efficiency and reducing the environmental impact of its accommodation operations.
Green Key provides us with a benchmark against which we can measure our own performance in relation to the environment. Green Key provides certification for companies providing accommodation services, but we have also adopted the criteria for our other business activities in addition to our accommodation.
