The Baltic Sea is our employer

Viking Line wants to work as well as they can to help the Baltic Sea become cleaner and more vital. This means co-operating with other actors who share the same goals and ambitions. One of them is Baltic Sea Action Group (BSAG)

BALTIC SEA ACTION GROUP (BSAG)

The Baltic Sea cannot wait: the ecological state of one of the most polluted seas in the world is critical. The problems are particularly related to eutrophication, maritime risks and emissions, threats imposed by hazardous substances as well as threats to biodiversity.

The alarming state is recognized throughout the coastal countries, which have participated in HELCOM’s (Helsinki Commission for protecting the Baltic Sea) Baltic Sea Action Plan (BSAP). It is an agreement on the measures that should be taken to revive the good ecological status of the sea. However, implementing the BSAP now calls for immediate concrete actions.

ALL LEVELS OF SOCIETY NEED TO BE ENGAGED

The Baltic Sea Action Group (BSAG) is an independent foundation that was established in 2008 to unite all forces needed to revive the Baltic Sea. BSAG strongly believes that involvement from all levels of society, including the highest political level, is needed in order to efficiently and sustainably improve the ecological state of the Baltic Sea. BSAG focuses on concrete actions and solution-oriented cooperation, acting as an initiator and a catalyst in bringing together various actors from the public, private and third sectors.

BSAG is based in Helsinki, Finland, but is active in all Baltic Sea countries. Our slogan is that everyone can help the Baltic Sea best by doing what they are best at. At most, the work for the Baltic Sea can benefit and open new opportunities for the commitment-maker.

PROCESS CONTINUES IN ST. PETERSBURG

A major step in our work was the Baltic Sea Action Summit (BSAS) held together with the President and the Prime minister of Finland in Helsinki in February 2010. Instead of mere public declarations, the participating Heads of State of all 14 countries around the Baltic Sea as well as some 140 companies and other organizations made concrete commitments to work towards a cleaner Baltic Sea. The next Summit will take place in St. Petersburg in 2013.

BSAG continues with the follow-up of existing commitments and by gathering and developing new ones. By now, there are over 200 commitments made. See all commitments at http://www.bsag.fi/en/commitments/Pages/All-Commitments.aspx
