Environmental counselling provides help online or at info points for environment-related issues. An environmental counsellor is available for association, housing company or club events, for example, to provide waste and environmental counselling free of charge. Information about voluntary environmental work or environmental education is also provided. Residents are also encouraged to compare options for lower energy use in their everyday lives, which can have immediate effects on their living costs. Online solutions and energy counselling can help residents reach optimal energy efficiency in their lives.

Sustainable options could include solar energy, geothermal or pellet heating, green energy or a smart combination of these. A material footprint calculator is available online at niisku.fi. Different pieces of equipment, such as meters, and materials can be borrowed for private energy use monitoring.
