The League of Green Embassies is a global network of over ninety diplomatic missions formulating a common agenda for energy efficiency, renewable energy and water conservation. Member embassies aspire to introduce innovative solutions, influence individuals and institutions in host countries and to play an important role in mobilizing public action.
The League provides new economic opportunities while addressing important political and ecological challenges such as energy security and climate change. The League website is a platform to discuss common challenges, promote best practices, and to connect solution providers to organizations in search of energy saving innovations.
Embassy Helsinki took over leadership of the League of Green Embassies from Embassy Stockholm in November, 2010 and has been actively engaged in action-based leadership ever since. Leading by example, Embassy Helsinki is fully committed to greening its own facilities and to helping other embassies do the same through various energy efficiency projects, such as the Europe-wide EE Global Clean Sweep.
