The Carbon Action platform’s stn MULTA -project delivered strategic research for all senses during the EDSCE19 Circular Economy Days, which were organized as part of the Finnish Presidency of the Council of the European Union. The days included both national and international top research, science-based art, food appropriate for the theme, and practical policies. Lastly we got to dig our hands in the soil.

The stn MULTA project, funded by the Strategic Research Council at the Academy of Finland and part of the Carbon Action platform, researches and develops methods to accelerate and scientifically prove soil carbon storage. Additionally the consortium advances and tests regenerative, multi-beneficial farming practices that improve soil health, and develops financial and other steering instruments to further the introduction of these solutions in Finland and elsewhere. The goal is to rouse enough actors needed to create systemic change. The Carbon Action platform also hosts other projects and has received funding from e.g. Sitra and Maj and Tor Nessling Foundation.

The stn MULTA project was well represented in the Circular Economy Days on 30 September and 1 November 2019, as well as its side-events. Important international connections were made, for example with doctors Leen Gorissen and Jean-François Soussana. Gorissen teaches regenerative thinking in Studio Transitio, and Soussana is one of the leading researchers in soil carbon sequestration, as well as one of the authors of the IPCC’s report on land use. Soussana works in the French National Institute of Agricultural Institute INRA, and he is a partner in the stn MULTA project.

At the start of the Circular Economy Days at Finlandia Hall BSAG and SuMaNu project organized a joint side-event on sustainable nutrient cycling. The link between nutrient cycling and sustainable land management was illustrated well in the high-level panel discussion. The international panel consisted of Sirpa Pietikäinen (MEP), Saara Bäck (Ministry of the Environment), Jean-François Soussana (INRA), Juha Nousiainen (Valio) and Sari Luostarinen (Natural Resource Institute Finland).

The Circular Economy Days opened with three Finnish examples, presented through videos. One of the three was Carbon Action. Among the commentators on stage were Soussana and Hanna Mattila from Sitra. You can watch the Carbon Action video here. Life in the soil was also presented through art at the Finlandia Hall foyer Piazza, with artist and researcher Teemu Lehmusruusu’s work Trophic Verses. Lehmusruusu is also a partner in the stn MULTA project.

On the next day, 1 November., Soussana participated in a public hearing on agricultural land as a solution to climate change mitigation and adaptation, organized by the Committee on Agriculture and Forestry and the Committee on the Environment. Soussana was accompanied by stn MULTA project’s researchers Jari Liski (The Finnish Meteorological Institute), Kristiina Regina (Natural Resource Institute Finland), and Tuomas Mattila (Finnish Environment Institute).

The events featured food from the Carbon Action farms. We dived deeper into the world of soil carbon sequestration in a pop-down dinner combining science and art at the Tytyri mine, 110 meters below ground. The evening was completed with tasty food from the Carbon Action farms, presentations by researchers and Lehmusruusu’s art: beautiful mycelium network grew on the walls of the underground dining hall.

On 2 November we felt the need to dig our hands in the soil. As a side-event we traveled to Qvidja farm, which utilizes regenerative farming practices and also functions as an intensive test site for Carbon Action and the stn MULTA project. In the Qvidja’s stone castle Leen Gorissen taught us about nature’s intelligence. The presentation summarized the basic principle of regenerativity: things should be left in a better condition than they were before. Carbon Action puts this into practice by tending soil and its microbes while farming, thus leaving the soil in a better condition. This also helps the soil to sequester carbon. In addition, carbon farmer Juuso Joona and Finnish Meteorological Institute’s researcher Henriikka Vekuri introduced us to the methods and research on site. Juuso familiarized us with different types of soil, and together we also stomped on the damp field, hearing worms burrowing in the soil. Read Gorissen’s interview here.

During this busy week Carbon Action and stn MULTA project participated in an active dialogue and imparted research information to a diverse set of listeners, made lots of new friends both from Finland and internationally, and got good media exposure. Let’s utilize all senses and turn knowledge into action!

Carbon Action interviewed Leen Gorissen during her first-time visit to Finland. Gorissen has a PhD in biology, specializing in ecology of birds. She left her job at a prestigious research institute, retrained, and now teaches others to think sustainably.

International guests at Parainen

The Finnish EU Presidency has had events concentrated in Helsinki. However, a group of participants from the European Days for Sustainable Circular Economy (EDSCE19) seminar took a trip to Parainen to explore Qvidja’s pilot farm, which utilizes regenerative farming methods. While the EDSCE19 seminar’s main focus was on the more conventional aspects of sustainability, such as minimizing side streams, the visit to Qvidja was an in-depth dive to the world of regenerativity in line with BSAG’s operational model. Farmer Juuso Joona, Finnish Meteorological Institute’s researcher Henriikka Vekuri, and Qvidja’s co-owner and BSAG’s Chair of the Board Saara Kankaanrinta introduced the visitors to the farm together. The composition of the trio embodied the philosophy behind Carbon Action: bold experimentation, collaboration, and top research brought together.

Qvidja as a pioneer

“I must admit that I am really impressed. There are not many people in the world who have already changed their way of thinking in a necessary way”, says Gorissen of Carbon Action.

Regenerativity is in the center of both Gorissen’s thinking and Carbon Action’s work. Contemporary human activity is rarely regenerative, whereas nature, or more precisely life, works regeneratively. The basic principle of regenerativity is to leave things in a better condition than we found them. Carbon Action puts this into practice with farming methods that take care of the soil and its microbes, leaving the soil in a better condition. This also helps the soil to sequester carbon.

Solution lies in combining biology and technology

Gorissen talks a lot about innovation but calls for a fresher, far-reaching perspecitve: “The world is not a machine, but a living system”. Technology should utilize biology but the two fields are separated from each other. Technological solutions developed by humans are often taken in on blind faith even though evolution would already have provided better solutions to the problems.

It is also important to think about the consequences of innovations, instead of focusing only on the innovations themselves. Redefining innovations is linked with the regenerativity of nature. According to Gorissen, the by-products and purpose should be taken into account when making new innovations: “We create new technologies without thinking about their side-effects. We don’t examine whether they improve our lives or do the opposite.”

Gorissen encourages to look for inspiration in nature. She believes nature has already found solutions to the problems we face, and it has done it in a way that sustains life and improves it in the long run.

The business world is evolving rapidly – whether or not we want it to

Gorissen appreciates the importance of science in finding solutions but believes that the big change will come from companies with the influence and wealth that is needed for change. The main reason for her switching over to the business world, however, was her frustration with the slowness of the academic writing process and peer-reviews. “I love science, it´s my passion. But solving the sustainability crisis is so pressing that the science community cannot focus solely on writing articles”, she stresses.

She believes that companies are the biggest contributors to change: “Business world has luckily also become aware of the urgency of climate action. Companies are noticing how the entire business ecosystem is changing so rapidly that we cannot think about innovations the way we have been thinking about them before.” Now is the right time for change and Gorissen trusts Carbon Action to be one of the forerunners leading the way for others.

Gorissen believes that regenerativity, which Carbon Action also researches and implements, will be essential for the future. We must view food production on the systemic level. For example, regenerativity also improves chances to survive in extreme weather conditions, which in the recent years have begun to afflict farmers. Gorissen thinks that Carbon Action is especially important, since there can be no sustainability without regenerativity: “Truly understanding life sheds light to the fact that sustainability is actually a byproduct of regenerativity”, she declares.

The visit to Qvidja was organized as part of the European Days for Sustainable Circular Economy conference. The international conference was part of Finland’s EU presidency programme. Leen Gorissen is an expert on regenerative thinking and has founded the Studio Transitio for facilitating transition processes.

The Baltic Sea Action Group’s annual christmas campaign has started. This year’s campaign is starred by the precious creatures living underneath the surface of the Baltic Sea, and the campaign theme is Long live the Baltic Sea. BSAG’s christmas campaign offers companies a chance to donate money to save the Baltic Sea, instead of spending it on material items.

The loss of nature’s biodiversity is a global threat which also affects the Baltic Sea. Long live the Baltic Sea -campaign aims to highlight the sea’s beauty and exceptionality, as well as bring attention to its habitants and securing their future. Biodiversity in the Baltic Sea is threatened by eutrophication, climate change and different human-induced pressures.

”The poor ecological condition of the Baltic Sea is well-known. With the Long live the Baltic Sea -campaign we wish to remind that despite its problems, the sea is also beautiful and unique and saving it is still possible! BSAG works to mitigate eutrophication and climate change, and to promote the protection of underwater biodiversity. Companies can participate in helping the Baltic Sea and its habitants by supporting BSAG”, says BSAG’s Managing Director Michaela Ramm-Schmidt.

The species chosen to represent the Baltic Sea’s biodiversity are porpoise, cod, zander, European flounder, Northern pike, whitefish, perch, blue mussel, moon jellyfish, Baltic herring and bladder wrack. All aforementioned species are introduced further on the campaign site. Each donation sum is matched with one of these species, which will be displayed on the campaign site together with the donating company’s logo. The more donations are collected, the livelier the campaign site becomes!

In addition to visibility on the campaign site, donors will also receive materials to communicate about their donation e.g. in social media and e-mails. The amount of materials depends on the size of the donation. All donors are also welcome to participate in a Baltic Sea themed evening organized by BSAG in the beginning of next year.

The campaign site can be found here: www.joululahjaitamerelle.fi. The site is in Finnish.


Baltic Sea Action Group’s board of directors has appointed Michaela Ramm-Schmidt as the foundation’s new managing director. Starting from 9 October 2019, we will be leading the foundation jointly as a complementary working pair.

Michaela has headed BSAG’s corporate relations since January 2019 and she has worked closely within the Carbon Action platform. She will continue with these tasks, but along with her new appointment, her work will expand to including, among others, also the foundation’s administration.

Michaela has a firm and versatile knowledge of leading, so we believe that she will succeed in her new job. Michaela is a Master of Laws and she is currently finalizing her Executive MBA-degree at the Henley Business School. She has been working with responsible business the past years. We will soon hear more about her thoughts in the form of a blog.

Thank you for your cooperation and let us keep up the good spirit in the future too!

With best Baltic Sea wishes,

Committee on Agriculture and Forestry and the Committee on the Environment held 1.10. a joint public hearing on agricultural land as a solution to climate change mitigation and adaptation. Among the speakers were Jean-François Soussana, one of the leading authors of the International Panel for Climate Change (IPCC) Land use -report (INRA, the French National Institute of Agricultural Research) as well as Finnish researchers active in the Carbon Action and stn MULTA projects.

A recent report by the IPCC on land use, states that land use has a major role to play in climate change: if we are to stay at the 2 degree target, we need to increase carbon sinks along with reducing emissions. Issues related to soil carbon storage and growth conditions have also been raised in the Finnish Government Program and were also the main topic of the informal meeting of EU Agriculture Ministers in Helsinki on 22-24 September 2019, during the Finnish Presidency of the Council of the European Union.

As a result, the public hearing at the Parliament 1.10.  draw a full hall of interested people, and the conversation was lively.

Soussana stated, among other things, that the carbon storage potential of soils is the easiest and most cost-effective way to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. He emphasized that food production should not suffer from soil carbon sequestration, but vice versa, as good soil condition improves resilience to extreme weather conditions.

Top researchers from the Finnish Carbon Action platform and the stn MULTA project were also heard: Research Professor Jari Liski from the Finnish Meteorological Institute, Professor Kristiina Regina from the Finnish Natural Resources Institute and Tuomas Mattila from the Finnish Environment Institute.

Jean-François Soussana met with some of the Carbon Action project crew at his visit to Finland

Jari Liski introduced the development of a carbon sequestration verification system. Kristiina Regina crystallized the problem of the peat land emissions, which now account for over 50% of total climate emissions in Finnish Agriculture. Regina posed a challenge to politicians: the clearing of peat lands should be stopped, and part of the area should be directly dedicated to emission reductions. Tuomas Mattila talked about the practical methods of carbon farming on a hundred Finnish farms, already involved in the stn MULTA project through Carbon Action.

Jean-Francois Soussana is also a partner in the Stn MULTA project funded by the Strategic Research Council at the Academy of Finland, and was surprised at how far the topic has already progressed.

I´m really impressed by how quickly you have developed the Carbon Action platform. And you have done it very pragmatic way, linking farmers and scientist into a living lab where you work together and learn from each other.  This is something we would like to promote in other countries” Soussana said after attending the events organized during Finland’s EU Presidency. It was agreed with Soussana for Carbon Action to intensify cooperation with for example the 4/1000 initiative and the EU project Circasa.

The minutes and the appendices of the public hearing of the Committee on Agriculture, Forestry and the Committee on the Environment, can be found here. 

The webcast of the event can be found here.

The hearing was a side event of the Finnish EU Presidency. The event was organized jointly by Parliament and the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry and BSAG. The event was organized in cooperation with the EDSCE2019 Circular Economy Days.


The loss of biodiversity is accelerating, and we need to take urgent and concrete action to stop species extinction. The biodiversity of the sensitive and unique ecosystem of the Baltic Sea is under threat, too. Baltic Sea Action Group (BSAG) is starting a collaborative project which utilises the extensive data from the Finnish Inventory Programme for the Underwater Marine Environment VELMU to build concrete measures to protect underwater environments. The creation of a protection plan for the pilot area of Gullkrona island in the archipelago of Southwestern Finland will begin with dives this autumn.

The project strengthens the collaboration with VELMU and the inventory project of the marine environments of Åland islands. In addition to BSAG, key collaborators include the Baltic Sea researchers professor Alf Norkko (University of Helsinki, Tvärminne zoological station), research professor and VELMU programme coordinator Markku Viitasalo (Finnish Environment Institute SYKE), special researcher Sonja Salovius-Laurén, project researcher Henna Rinne, and assistant professor Christoffer Boström (Åbo Akademi).

The Bank of Åland’s Baltic Sea Project is the strategic partner and financer of the project. The Bank of Åland funds the project with 80 000 € during its first year and the aim is to build long-term collaboration.

“The loss of biodiversity is a threat to the planet and humankind, comparable to climate change. These problems also relate to the Baltic Sea. The Bank of Åland’s Baltic Sea Project has for a long time supported projects that improve the state of the sea and we view this collaboration with BSAG as a unique opportunity to affect the state of the marine environment and advance the well-being of the Baltic Sea”, says Anne-Maria Salonius, Director for business area Finland at the Bank of Åland.

”We want to advance the protection of key species and habitats”, says Laura Höijer, Content Director at BSAG. “The aim is to increase awareness of the role of marine biodiversity and demonstrate how private entities can participate in the protection of marine environments.”

The targeting of protection measures requires information on where key areas are located. In Finland, the circumstances for building effective protection programmes are good since necessary data and knowledge on crucial underwater marine environments have been produced and mapped over the past 15 years in the VELMU programme.

”About a tenth of the Finnish sea areas are protected but based on the VELMU data we know that almost three quarters of important marine environments are outside of the currently protected areas. However, a one percent increase in protected areas would protect many ecological key species and habitats and double the effect of the protection, if the measures are well planned and precisely targeted”, says research professor Markku Viitasalo.

The underwater biodiversity of the Baltic Sea is supported by species such as bladder wrack, eelgrass and mussels. These species maintain the functions of the ecosystem by providing habitats, nutrition and refuge for several other life forms. However, eutrophication has weakened these crucial species and climate change has become another major stressor as it changes the sea, making it an unfavourable living environment for them.

To protect the biodiversity of the sea both eutrophication and climate change must be addressed, but in addition its important to protect the habitats of the key species from the pressure that human activity imposes on them.

”The majority of the most valuable areas are located in shallow waters, near isle shores. These are often areas owned by private entities. Our challenge is to help the owners – private entities, municipalities and businesses – see the value in conservation and convince them to take action. One of the aims of the project is to demonstrate how the protection can be carried out and what follows from it”, says BSAG:s Laura Höijer. “The benefits to nature are obvious but private owners also need to know what sort of restrictions conservation may entail.”

The recently opened Gullkrona island, which is popular among boaters, is the pilot area for the project. According to the VELMU data gathered so far, the surroundings of the island are rich habitats and the variety of species will be further investigated during the early autumn 2019. Following the investigation, the aim is to collaboratively build conservation measures, the implementation of which is decided on by the local fishing co-op. Moving forward, the protected areas will remain under observation. The evaluation is planned with VELMU and it is carried out by Metsähallitus.

The opportunities that private conservation entails are demonstrated not only on Gullkrona island but also through utilising the research and art activities of Korpoström Archipelago Centre and BSAG: s other communication activities.

” Broad-based cooperation enables long-term protection that affects the Baltic Sea in many ways and spans long into the future”, Höijer summarizes.

 

 


Fazer makes updates to the Baltic Sea Commitment the company made to Baltic Sea Action Group (BSAG) in 2018 by joining the Carbon Action platform and introducing carbon farming practices into its Grain Vision.

Being a major purchaser of grains Fazer acknowledges its responsibility for developing sustainable farming practices. BSAG has cooperated with Fazer since 2013 when Fazer made its first Baltic Sea Commitment. As part of its first Commitment, Fazer, together with its farmers, developed a Grain Vision and ten principles of sustainable farming through which the Grain Vision is implemented. The aim of the Grain Vision is to decrease the eutrophication of lakes, rivers, and the Baltic Sea, to protect biodiversity and soil fertility and to reduce the use of chemicals in farming. Now, Fazer makes updates to its second five-year Baltic Sea Commitment made in 2018 by joining the Carbon Action platform and making climate change mitigation and carbon sequestration an integral part of its Grain Vision.

The capacity of the soil to sequester carbon and mitigate climate change can be increased by taking care of the soil and the farmland. The Carbon Action platform, led by BSAG and the Finnish Meteorological Institute, combines research and practical work to fight climate change. Carbon Action finds ways of speeding up the storing of carbon in the soil from the atmosphere and confirming the increased storage scientifically. Carbon Action also promotes farming practices that store carbon (i.e. carbon farming) on Finnish farms and include the farmers in the research process. The platform enables researchers and businesses to exchange information and learn from one another.

 

The Grain Vision is a part of Fazer’s Baltic Sea Commitment and responsibility work

The Grain Vision is implemented through ten principles of sustainable farming. The principles, put out in 2017, were developed based on existing best practices in cooperation with farmers, farmer associations and environmental organizations. The use of chemicals and the treatment of the soil are among the issues the principles regulate. Originally, they were mainly focused on preventing eutrophication. Fazer continuously monitors the principles since farming practices are constantly evolving. Joining the Carbon Action platform supports Fazer’s sustainability goals and carbon farming practices now become a part of Fazer’s Grain Vision.

“The same means and actions can often be used to tackle both eutrophication and climate change. Our goal is, that by 2025, all Finnish grain we use will have been grown in compliance with the principles of sustainable farming,” explains Nina Elomaa, Sustainability Director at Fazer Group.

”It’s great seeing our long-term environmental cooperation with Fazer evolving and expanding into new territories,” says Laura Höijer, Content Director at BSAG. ”A large actor such as Fazer can significantly contribute to the scaling up of carbon sequestration in arable lands”, Höijer continues.

The Carbon Action business platform, managed by BSAG, brings together major companies from different parts of the food chain. Corporate cooperation facilitates the innovation of carbon neutral products and ensures that the message reaches the consumers. The ways food is produced and consumed have a large impact on the environment, our societies and our wellbeing. Fazer joining the Carbon Action cooperation presents new opportunities of solving the problems we are faced with.


Bold Projects is a nonprofit association that performed their first charity undertaking in 2018 by running 100 kilometres from Helsinki to Tammisaari, urging people to donate money for breast cancer research. The run was a success as they managed to raise over 12 000 euros for a good cause.

This year instead of running, they will row. The four person team (Valtteri Ikäheimo, Bernhard Forstén, Eddie Myrskog and Linus Lehto) will row from Stockholm to Helsinki at the end of July. The feat goes by the name Bold Voyage.

Since Bold Voyage rows at the Baltic Sea, this year’s recipient of donations is the Baltic Sea Action Group. Bold Projects wants to raise awareness on the poor condition of the Baltic Sea, and encourage people to donate money for BSAG’s work for the sea. Donations can be made by companies and private individuals, and the donors will be featured on the project’s campaign page.

”BSAG has seemed like a good donee since the start of the project. We contacted them at the end of last year and since then have worked in collaboration to prepare for the launch of the campaign”, tells Bold Projects’ Valtteri Ikäheimo.

The route across the Baltic Sea is approximately 500 kilometres long, requiring not only smooth team work and tolerance to stress, but also that the rowers are in excellent physical shape. Training with a rowing club began in January, and since then the rowers have trained almost daily. The boat will have a small cabin where two team members can sleep while the other two row. The goal is to reach Helsinki in 5-7 days.

”July is usually the season for cyanobacterial blooms in the Baltic Sea, which is the most obvious sign of the sea’s eutrophication problem. We are thrilled that Bold Projects wants to help the Baltic Sea in this innovative way! BSAG wishes tailwind for the rowers and will follow the progress of the journey excitedly”, says BSAG’s content director Laura Höijer.

The new EU Fertilising Products Regulation (FRP) is published. This will open the European market for recycled fertilisers, for recycling technologies, and for other organic and organo-mineral fertilisers.

Nutrient recycling is an important part of circular economy and linked to the Baltic Sea in several ways:  when the nutrients stay in sustainable use, they will not leak to the water ways, recycled organic fertilisers also improve soil health and carbon storage, which keep nutrients in the plant use and mitigate climate change.

Baltic Sea Action Group has actively promoted sustainable and safe nutrient recycling since 2013 and according to many played a pivotal part in getting nutrients included to the EU circular economy strategy, of which the new EU Fertilising Products Regulation is a part.

The JRC report proposing criteria for new materials to be included to the regulation, such as biochars/pyrolysis materials, struvite/recovered phosphate salts, ash-based products, is also in process.

Over the next two years, BSAG participates in a pan-Baltic consortium in the Interreg funded project WATERDRIVE. Waterdrive promotes a holistic multi-benefit approach, utilizing the synergies between agricultural water management and river basin management. It engages local multi-stakeholder groups and implements local case projects to gather evidence and tools to execute more holistic cross-sector water management projects which benefit the farmer, the nature and the wider community. Waterdrive is strongly aligned with the climate contingency strategies for agriculture on the national level and it seeks to establish a strong enough evidence basis for the needed adaptations in the policy mechanisms and administration.

The WATERDRIVE consortium, consisting of 18 partners from the EU countries (inclusion of Russia and Belarus in the project is in process), brings together national, regional and local authorities, research institutes, agricultural advisory organisations, interest organisations, environmental NGO’s and companies. As such, it is a true cross-sector multi-actor collaboration platform with decades of joint experience in working with diffuse source nutrient pollution management and assessment and in execution of concrete agri-environment projects on local and municipal levels. Many key actors being members of the consortium, the project can motor the process for change and produce results which enjoy strong support from within the stakeholders and which are realistically implemented. As an example, a model of a result-based agri-environmental compensation scheme will be tested and assessed in Sweden. Digitalization and the use of advanced decision support systems is at the core of the project and it will make advanced digital decision support systems available for a number of farms, which will test and co-develop the systems. Supporting integration across scales, the same tools are also demonstrated and tested with advisors and planning authorities.

BSAG’s role in the project mainly concerns work package 5, which focuses on creating impact. BSAG leads an activity compiling best practices for financing collaborative local projects. Within this activity, some local demonstration investment projects will be developed for implementation. Beyond that, participation in Waterdrive strengthens BSAG’s work on climate smart agriculture on the Carbon Action platform by enabling the establishing of strong links and collaboration across the existing work on farming practices and soil and water management provided by the Waterdrive project. Waterdrive maintains a strong focus on the catchment and landscape levels with a specific attention on water quality thereby offering broader reference context and stakeholder basis to complement the Carbon Action platform. BSAG’s existing cooperation with various actors in the regions of Southern and Southwestern Finland provides a strong expert and stakeholder basis for joint learning through testing practices and measures. In Finland, Waterdrive will be implemented in practice in the River Porvoo catchment area, where the aim of drainage renovation works (coordinated by ProAgria Southern Finland) is to sustainably improve drainage and mitigate flood risks while preserving the fisheries and spawning grounds. A challenging task, but as such, it goes well with BSAG’s portfolio and track record.

Waterdrive runs until June 2021 and is coordinated by the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU). The other Finnish partners are Finnish Environment Institute (SYKE), Natural Resources Institute Finland (Luke) and Finnish Field Drainage Association. The project website will be opened soon, until then, more information is available on the Interreg website or in Finnish here.
