Introduction by Dagfinn Høybråten,
Secretary-General of the Nordic Council of Ministers
If global consumption patterns were the same as those of the Nordic countries, we would need close to four planets to survive. While this calculation is something of an eye-opener, the good news is that the Nordic countries are working hard to change this.
In this edition of Green Growth the Nordic Way, you can find out more about the sustainable development goals that the Nordic countries are finding the most challenging, and how we’re intending to tackle the bumps on the road to 2030. The latest measure is the Nordic Council of Ministers’ Generation 2030 programme, which puts sustainable consumption and production under the microscope.
Our daily habits, interactions and partnerships really do matter. I hope that this issue of Green Growth the Nordic Way will bring some inspiration and offer some examples of the leverage that Nordic regional co-operation offers on our shared journey to 2030.
