Finland's sustainable development indicators are being used to monitor and assess the implementation of sustainable development goals in Finland. Sustainable development can often be a rather abstract concept, and since 2000 images that illustrate sustainable development have been gathered into a set of indicators that represent clear development directions. Thus the indicators function as support for decision-making and a tool for monitoring sustainable development.
The indicators are the result of co-operation between several administrative sectors, and they reflect many points of view. The intention is to illustrate the various areas of sustainable development in the most diverse and comprehensive manner possible.
