The autumn meeting of the Finnish Artists' Association approved a sustainability plan for the association for 2024-2027.

The Artists’ Association of Finland has identified the need to better consider the ecological impacts of its activities. As the climate crisis and biodiversity loss accelerate, the Artists’ Association wants to reduce its own carbon and ecological footprints, improve the ecological sustainability of its operations and promote sustainability across the visual arts sector.

The sustainability plan complements the Association’s strategy for 2022–2026 and the annual action plan.

In this plan, sustainability is assessed with regard to climate change and ecological sustainability in particular. Measures related to the ethical basis of operations and good administrative practices are set out in the Association’s other documents (the equality and non-discrimination plan, principles of safe meeting spaces, rules, regulations). This plan focuses on reducing the direct carbon and environmental footprints of the Association’s activities.

The sustainability plan has been devised by assessing which aspects of the operations are already sustainable and which need to be improved. The plan is divided by theme, each containing concrete measures for the four-year period covered by the plan.
