Four commitments to sustainable development

The Finnish financial sector stands fully in support of limiting global warming well below two degrees Celsius, as set down in the Paris climate agreement. Our aims: resource-wise economy and carbon-neutral society.keke-tunnus-pieni.jpg

Finance Finland (FFI) has made four commitments to sustainable development with its cooperation partners. The commitments aim for wise, sustainable use of resources and smaller carbon footprints. Progress on the commitments is evaluated regularly for the next four to five years.

The active commitments:

The Society's Commitment to Sustainable Development is the Finnish implementation of the UN Agenda 2030, a set of seventeen global goals for all UN Member States. One of them is to take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts.

The society's commitment is administrated by the Finnish National Commission on Sustainable Development, which is responsible for adapting sustainable development goals into national policies in Finland. Various actors in the society make commitments for the achievement of sustainable development objectives on the basis of their individual specialisations.
