Arctic policy

All activities in the Arctic must be tied in with the carrying capacity of the natural environment, the need to protect the climate, sustainable development principles and respect for the rights of indigenous populations. This is the foundation for any objectives related to economic activity and Finland’s economic interests.

The Prime Minister’s Office is responsible for coordinating Arctic policy and has appointed an Arctic Advisory Board and a working group of officials responsible for Arctic policy to carry out this work. The Arctic Advisory Board brings together the key Finnish stakeholders involved in activities in the Arctic.
