Finnvera promises to co-finance environmental business that has potential for profitability and promotes enterprises’ sustainable growth, internationalisation and exports. The pledge was issued in connection with a challenge campaign launched by the Ministry of Employment and the Economy and Tekes, where various organisations were invited to give concrete promises on how they undertake to promote Finland’s pioneering work in environmental business, contributing to sustainable economic growth.
The challenge campaign is associated with the Cleantech programme that defines strategic targets for Finnish cleantech business and coordinates the efforts of various actors. In the first phase of the pledge process, challenges were issued to the Ministries and to public-sector organisations. In the next phase, enterprises, municipalities and other actors will be invited to present their pledges
The pledges given by the organisations invited to the campaign were publicised at the “Green Growth Summit” organised in Helsinki.
