Correspondence of the Society's Commitment and Agenda2030

Finland implements the global Agenda2030 for sustainable development through The Society’s Commitment to Sustainable Development.

Society’s Commitment to Sustainable Development was prepared by the Finnish National Commission on Sustainable Development in 2013, while global negotiations on Agenda2030 were still under way. When Agenda2030 was approved in September 2015, the Commission decided to update Society’s Commitment to Sustainable Development, in order to align it with the principles, goals and targets of Agenda2030.

The update aligned Finland's sustainable development policy, i.e. Society’s Commitment to Sustainable Development, fairly well with the United Nations' Sustainable Development Action Plan, Agenda2030. The eight objectives of the Commitment include all 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of Agenda2030.
