Policy 3

We will bear responsibility for climate change mitigation and adaptation.

Achieving intergenerational justice and safe societal development requires us to move towards carbon neutrality and respect for biodiversity. Therefore, we will assess the ecological impact of reforms and decisions also in sectors where we have not been used to doing so before. We will strengthen a climate smart society and biodiversity, for example through information, incentives and versatile guidance, as well as by making smart use of new technologies. We will actively take part in international climate work.

Move forward

Implementing the change will require at least the following actions:

  1. We will carry out impact assessment of decisions in a more comprehensive and diverse way, for example by utilising digitalisation systematically.
  2. We will take the climate crisis and biodiversity loss into account in the Government’s strategic and budgetary processes, in order for environmentally sustainable practices also to support social and economic sustainability.
  3. We will ensure that administrative branches and local government receive adequate support for environmental impact assessments. We will utilise models of responsibility reporting.
