By 2030 we need 50% more food, 45% more energy, and 30% more water. The solution is bioeconomy.

The bioeconomy is based on the sustainable use of renewable resources. Finland’s forests, fields and waters produce plenty of raw materials and create the conditions for services depending on the natural environment, such as nature tourism. By using bio-based products we can reduce the volumes of substances and materials that have adverse impacts on the environment, including fossil oil, coal and plastic. The bioeconomy utilizes clean technologies that enable the efficient use of natural resources and nutrients, while taking care of biodiversity. It promotes Finland’s self-sufficiency, boosts economic growth, and helps us to achieve a carbon-neutral society by 2045.
