Sustainability is everyone’s responsibility

The National Land Survey Finland has published its 2021 sustainability report. The report details the sustainability measures implemented during the year and outlines our long-term sustainability development plans. In the future, the NLS’s sustainability development will be steered by the ‘Responsibility for the Earth’ sustainability programme.

‘Sustainability is an integral part of the basic duties and operations of the NLS. Our goal is to increase the handprint achieved for the good of our society and reduce the footprint caused by our operations. The new report is again more extensive and diverse than the previous one. It was also drafted by our own experts, and I wish to extend my warmest thank yous to them,’ says Maija Ilvonen, Director of Communications and Sustainability.

The NLS’s sustainability goals are divided into four themes: data to serve society, people who feel well, sustainable environment, and sustainable way of working and economic sustainability.

The sustainability programme steers the NLS’s future

The NLS’s first sustainability programme ‘Responsibility for the Earth’ was finalised at the of 2021. Experts from different NLS units took part in the drafting, and key external stakeholders were consulted during the process. With the programme, the National Land Survey of Finland promises to advance 50 acts of sustainability by 2027.

‘Sustainability is materialised in our daily activities, and best when we recognise how meaningful our own work is. To achieve our sustainability goals, we will not only work internally, but also hope for and actively request the support and vision of our customers and partners,’ says Arvo Kokkonen, Director General.
