By 2030, we will 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 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 fuel, coal and plastic. The bioeconomy utilises clean technologies that enable the efficient use of natural resources and nutrients, while looking after biodiversity. It promotes Finland’s self-sufficiency and boosts economic growth, and will help us to achieve a carbon-neutral society by 2045.
