The manual for Municipal Environmental Audit developed by the Union of Baltic Cities (UBC) in 1996-98 to support the environmental work of cities in the Baltic Sea region, was used by the two neighbouring Finnish cities Turku and Pori to review their environmental management. Expert teams from the two cities audited the other city in the six selected areas: air pollution monitoring, noise abatement,, waste management, water protection, nature protection and biodiversity, and environmental administration. Results from the process are summarised in the article. The environmental administration in both cities confirmed the great value of feed-back from expert colleagues to improve work and routines in environmental management.
