Our projects to protect the Baltic Sea

Ongoing projects

In our projects for the protection of the Baltic Sea, we reduce the eutrifying nutrient load of the Baltic Sea in the entire catchment area.

Completed projects on the map

During 2005 – 2015, we have completed 14 projects for the protection of the Baltic Sea. With the projects, the annual phosphorus load of the Baltic Sea has been reduced by over 2,000 tonnes.

“The Clean Baltic Sea activities of the John Nurminen Foundation have proven to be an excellent example of how the private sector can make a major contribution to boosting the efforts to clean the Sea. The Foundation has chosen to apply business sector principles in its activities. Projects have to be cost-efficient and bring concrete results in the shortest possible time. This has been a successful approach.

- President of the Republic of Finland Sauli Niinistö, Patron of the Clean Baltic Sea projects
