BSAG, The Baltic Sea Action Group , is an independent non-profit foundation (2008) based in Finland. The mission of BSAG is to revive the ecological state of the entire Baltic Sea. The official name of the Baltic Sea Action Group is Foundation for a Living Baltic Sea.
The work is based on constructive cooperation with authorities and the private sector and it firmly leans on scientific research and the views of specialists.
BSAG follows the HELCOM’s (Helsinki Commission for Protecting the Baltic Sea) Baltic Sea Action plan, focusing on problems concerning agriculture, maritime activities and hazardous substances.
In February 2010, BSAG together with the Finnish President and Prime Minister, organized a Baltic Sea Action Summit. The Heads of State and more than 140 companies and organizations around the Baltic Sea made concrete commitments for the wellbeing of the sea. BSAG continues to work on new commitments whilst following the old ones. The BSAS process continues in St. Petersburg in the spring 2013.
