Why EcoCity work ? -Pekka Paloheimo, Founder

We firmly believe that it is our generations’ global responsibility to put all our efforts into saving our planet earth.

We also believe that it is the responsibility of authorities to create an operational environment in which it’s most economical for individuals and companies to act in an environmentally friendly way. In this way the world can quickly change for the better. This is why in all of our planning and consulting work we always think about the environmental and also the economical effects. Eco2 = ecological and economical.

We believe that the best way to contribute to saving our planet is to lead by example. This is why it is important to create success stories in cleantech and other environmental businesses.

…and finally, we believe that the next big step in this ongoing Eco2 revolution is to connect interests of public sector, cleantech companies and researchers through digitalization.

That is why we do, what we do, the way we do it.

Ecological smartcity concepts

Our planning is based on the principles of sustainable development. We create ecological smartcity concepts both for greenfield areas and existing urban structure. Our concepts aim at minimizing the energy consumption and emissions generated by urban communities.

An ecological smartcity aims for local production and self-sufficiency. In our concepts we take into account local culture, cost efficiency and future technologies.

EcoCity Tools

EcoCity Evaluator is a tool for planning ecologically and economically smart cities.

The Ecocity Evaluator helps authorities, urban planners and developers to find the most cost-effective way to plan and build sustainable cities.

The Green Factor tool helps urban planners to guide the construction of new developments and to reduce their environmental impacts.

The tool is based on green factor approach. It is particularly suitable for stormwater management and maintaining sufficient green space. With the tool it is possible to define requirements to guide construction and to monitor how they are met

YKR Climate is a service concept based on our calculation tool (YKR-tool) developed for Finnish communities.

The tool uses spatial data (YKR) to estimate energy efficiency and GHG emissions of current community structures, but with future scenarios it’s also possible to model upcoming changes. With the tool it’s easy to generate new numerical and comparable environmental data describing the current situation.

Eero Paloheimo Ecocity Story

The bedrock for our company was laid in 1975 when professor Paloheimo took his family for a year long round the world trip. Based on his experiences and observations he wrote his first book on the emerging challenges our environment is facing.

Since 1975 Eero Paloheimo has worked as a MP, a professor and environmental activist and written many books and articles on what we should be doing to save our planet. His key message has been that survival is possible through wise development and use of technology.

Eero’s son Pekka went on the 1975 trip at age 8. Since then he has worked as a successful management consultant and developed his own forward thinking about our global problems. In 2009 Eero and Pekka with three other experts founded Eero Paloheimo Ecocity Ltd.

Since then the company has designed and carried out ambitious and unique smartcity concepts to China and Finland, been nominated for the Katerva award, done climate effect analysis of urban plans for all major Finnish cities and most importantly, developed a SaaS that will help urban planners around the world to save the planet.and carried out ambitious and unique smartcity concepts to China and Finland, been nominated for the Katerva award, done climate effect analysis of urban plans for all major Finnish cities and most importantly, developed a SaaS that will help urban planners around the world to save the planet.
