Our responsibility

If you love, you protect


We bear responsibility for the world's cleanest air, soil and water. We bear responsibility for the Arctic nature, which leaves an eternal mark on people - and on which people can leave an eternal mark. We bear responsibility for the Lapland culture and way of life, which are lived by only a handful of people here north of the Arctic Circle.

We have identified the environmental aspects related to responsible apartment accommodation. These include:

  • Recycling of company waste
  • Instructing customers and staff on ecological operations
  • Purchasing ecologically
  • Energy saving
  • Active participation in the environmental certification of the Levi area
  • Sustainable tourism

We sort our waste. Polar Star Apartments has its own waste point with recycling bins for glass and paper. We encourage our customers to also recycle cardboard, plastic and batteries at Levi's common collection points. We guide staff and travelers to save and respect nature through everyday actions.

We use environmentally friendly cleaning agents, paper towels and toilet paper in our apartments. Regarding other procurements, we require our suppliers to operate in an environmentally friendly manner.

We use energy-friendly or LED lamps in our apartments. We have made sure that we only use electricity that has been produced by using 100 % renewable energy sources.

We constantly monitor our water consumption, and water-saving measures are an important part of our company's environmentally conscious operation.

We are involved in the environmental certification of the Levi area, our accommodation facility Polar Star Apartments has been granted the Green Key certificate 2020, we also follow strict Green Key criteria in the office and staff premises.

The management and staff of our company pay attention to the principles of sustainable tourism in all their activities. The management of our company evaluates the functionality of our environmental system in an annual review.

In sustainable tourism, the needs of the traveler and the destination are combined while respecting the local culture and environment. The idea of ​​sustainable tourism is to preserve the cultural tradition of the destination area and protect valuable natural areas. At the same time, sustainable tourism supports the region's economy.

Our operations are based on Finnish laws and regulations.
