Friends of the Baltic Sea
SEA LIFE has taken part in the Baltic Sea Challenge formed by the Cities of Helsinki and Turku to convey the state of the Baltic Sea. SEA LIFE promotes positive environmental awareness and is involved in marine conservation work.
The action program for the Baltic Sea:
1. SEA LIFE was issued the WWF's Green Office certificate in Spring 2010.
The Green Office logo requires that the company's environmental issues are sorted. SEA LIFE aspires towards continuous improvement in environmental matters and chooses the indicators, sets numeric objectives and monitors the fulfillment of those objectives.
At SEA LIFE the Green Office action includes the following specific issues:
- Reducing paper consumption and use of environmentally friendly paper
- Reduction of lighting power consumption
- Reducing the use of plastic bags
- That employees are regularly educated in environmental issues.
- For mainly by public transport, cycling or walking

2. Sea Life uses green electricity, which comes from hydroelectric power generation.
3. There is a Baltic Sea Tank and an exhibition of Finnish fish. There are specific exhibition boards with information about the Baltic Sea and its protection.
4. New "Marine Conservation" guide sessions are being developed for different age groups.
