JNS-tunnus_eng_RGB_sininenJohn Nurminen Foundation, Finland

The Clean Baltic Sea projects of the John Nurminen Foundation aim at mitigating eutrophication of the Baltic Sea by reducing nutrient load to the Sea with focused, cost-effective and fast actions. During the past 10 years, the Foundation has implemented projects reducing the annual phosphorus load to the Sea by over 2000 tons. The Foundation’s environmental work is financed by the private sector, but projects often include also public funding. The environmental projects of the John Nurminen Foundation have thus successfully linked public and private sectors to join their knowledge and resources for the benefit of the Baltic Sea.
