BSAG works to restore the good ecological balance of the Baltic Sea. It is a goal that can be reached only through extensive co-operation.

MISSION

Today the Baltic Sea is in critical condition – it is considered one of the most polluted seas in the world. It can still be saved but actions should be taken immediately.

The most severe problems of the Baltic Sea are eutrophication, hazardous substances, risks of the maritime traffic and the loss of biodiversity. The environmental problems are interwoven. When we are talking about climate change, we are also talking about the state of the Baltic Sea.

BSAG, The Baltic Sea Action Group, (officially “Foundation for a Living Baltic Sea”) is an independent non-profit foundation (2008) based in Finland. BSAG works to find solutions and right actors to restore the good ecological balance of the Baltic Sea.

The work is based on constructive cooperation among all levels of society, including the highest political level in all the Baltic Sea countries, public authorities, and the private sector. BSAG works as a matchmaker, bringing research findings to the use of the decision makers, activating companies to find and implement solutions, and bringing together the parties needed to save the Baltic Sea.
