The main goal of the world championships regarding the preservation of the environment is to underline the quality of Finnish tap water and how it is the primary source of drinking water.

Other important aspects of the event are sustainable choices and the proper recycling of waste. The goal is to set an example as a pioneer of responsible large-scale events.
