Society's Commitment to Sustainable Development
Finland’s national strategy for sustainable development was reformed in 2013. Instead of a traditional strategy document, the National Commission on Sustainable Development decided to introduce Society’s Commitment to Sustainable Development, ”The Finland we want by 2050”. With the Commitment, the public sector, together with other actors, pledges to promote sustainable development in all its work and operations.
Society's Commitment to Sustainable Development is a key instrument for implementing the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Society’s Commitment to Sustainable Development is a shared long-term vision of the Finland we want to have in the future. The Commitment is founded on a common understanding of the compelling need for change.
Society's Commitment includes mutually agreed-upon objectives and practices that are required to secure a good life now and for the future generations. Society's Commitment is the interpretation of the Finnish National Commission on Sustainable Development on what sustainable development means. The practical measures will, in turn, define the contents of sustainable development.
Companies, corporations, educational institutions, administration, political parties, cities and other actors can make their own concrete operational commitments to contribute to the implementation of the shared goals.
