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, BSAS. The Heads of State and more than 140 companies and organizations around the Baltic Sea made concrete Commitments for the wellbeing of the sea. BSAS Helsinki was followed by Baltic Sea Forum in St. Petersburg hosted by the Prime Minister Medvedev in April 2013.
The process continues, the Commitment Makers implement the Commitments they have made. BSAG monitors the Commitments given and actively seeks new ones to benefit the Baltic Sea.
