Sustainability is an integral element of the work undertaken by the authorities. The Bank of Finland’s sustainability work is based on the Bank’s values and sustainability programme, which builds on the competence and expertise of our experts. The Bank of Finland’s activities are guided by the Bank’s ethical rules, principles of sound governance and transparency.

The foundations of the Bank’s sustainability lie in our core activities. The Bank’s task is to contribute to ensuring price stability, security and inclusion in the context of payment systems, and the reliability of the financial system. The Bank of Finland also plays a role in building a society that is socially and ecologically sustainable. By executing these duties in line with our statutory objectives, the Bank of Finland serves Finnish society in the best possible way.

The sustainability programme will focus on sustainable growth and promotion of wellbeing, exercise of influence via information and cooperation as well as management of climate risks. We will promote these themes with the following actions.
