"Using Natural Resources Intelligently: A Natural Resource Strategy for Finland" promotes both sustainable development and competitive businesses. It looks at Finland as part of the global community. It brings together the worlds and perspectives of politics, government, business, research, NGOs and the media to collaborate on setting common goals on issues pertaining to all natural resources. The natural resource strategy examines natural resources and their inter-linkages across sectoral boundaries, and covers the perspectives of both use and protection and over a sufficiently long period. The strategy was compiled by a comprehensive group of experts and managed by the Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra.
