Helsinki Olympic Stadium launches new partnership to develop low carbon operations

The sports venue will collaborate with renewable materials company Stora Enso to reduce the carbon footprint of customer and food service packaging

Helsinki's Olympic Stadium in Finland has signed a partnership agreement with renewable materials company Stora Enso to develop low carbon operations.

Partners will seek to increase the use of renewable materials and circular economy solutions in the stadium, which was built for the 1940 Olympics.

The partnership will firstly focus on customer and food service packaging to reduce the climate impact of stadium operations - for example, used high-quality fibre from paper cups will be recycled for new products.
