Resource wisdom

Lappeenranta is one of four Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra's Towards Resource Wisdom -project's pioneer cities.

The aim is to find and develop ways in which Lappeenranta can become waste free and carbon neutral by 2050. 

Resource wisdom and circular economy

Crucial parts of resource wisdom and circular economy are: 

  • The wellbeing of citicens
  • Improving energy efficiency
  • Sustainable mobility
  • Improving local economy


In practice, resource wisdom is related to all operations connected to circular economy and climate change mitigation. All cities that have accepted the resource wisdom roadmap are members of the Finnish Sustainable Communities (FISU) network.
