Who are we?

whoareweThe Nordic Council of Ministers constitutes the official cooperation between the five Nordic countries, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, along with the Faroe Islands, Greenland and Åland.

This magazine follows the activities of the Nordic Council of Ministers in the areas of green growth, sustainable development and bioeconomy, principally in connection with the green growth initiative launched by the Nordic Prime Ministers, “The Nordic Region – leading in green growth” and the bioeconomy initiative NordBio.

The aim of these initiatives is to create joint Nordic solutions to shared problems in selected areas. The vision of a Nordic lead in green growth and bioeconomy is based on utilizing Nordic strengths to further energy efficiency, sustainable energy development, environmental awareness, better use of resources and less production of waste, green solutions and standards, as well as green investments in innovation and research.

Apart from the projects under the Nordic green growth initiative and NordBio, the magazine also documents a wide range of other activities connected with greening the economy, as well as highlighting new reports from the Nordic Council of Ministers in this field.
