Corporate co-operation


For companies, protecting the Baltic Sea is today’s way of doing environmental work and implementing corporate responsibility. By supporting the Clean Baltic Sea projects, companies participate in concrete environmental protection that brings results. The operational model of the projects has been applied from the corporate world, making it a great match for the way many companies think. When working together, sponsor companies also receive information on the Baltic Sea, its status, and measures taken to improve the situation.


  • Monetary donations
  • Pro bono work
  • Donations of machinery and equipment
  • Donations of media space
  • Cooperation involving product marketing, agreed on a case by case basis

The clean Baltic Sea projects give their partners:

  • An opportunity to participate in cost-efficient projects that improve the status of the Baltic Sea, for example at one of the project sites where nutrient discharges are reduced.
  • Comprehensive information on project goals, results, and expenditure. Information is available on the website, in the annual report, and in the Fund Report sent to supporters twice a year.
  • Depending on the scope of the cooperation, supporting companies can be featured in the Clean Baltic Sea projects’ communication materials and website. All companies who have donated at least €1,000 are listed on the Foundation’s website.


Corporate cooperation with the John Nurminen Foundation has three partnership levels: main partners, key supporters, and other supporters.

Partnership categories are defined based on the financial value of the support. The duration of the support is also taken into account when deciding on the category. If the donation consists of effort, the donor will present an evaluation of the monetary value of the support, based on which the Foundation and its supporters can agree on the category.


Main partners receive logo visibility on the website of the Clean Baltic Sea projects and in the Annual Report. Cooperation in the fields of marketing and communications and co-branding (if used) are tailored in line with the wishes of the main partner. Main partners have the opportunity to host the John Nurminen Foundation’s annual Club Itämeri stakeholder seminar.


Key supporters receive logo visibility on the Foundation’s website and in the Annual Report. Key supporters are highlighted in the Foundation’s communications within the context of their business operations.


Supporters receive visibility on the Foundation’s website and in the Annual Report.
