Sustainability

The Finnish Medicines Agency Fimea’s sustainability report is based on the UN’s principles of sustainable development and is part of the central government's joint responsibility reporting.

Fimea’s social sustainability is based on our statutory duties, and it aims at safeguarding the well-being of the population and services and benefits in a sustainable manner. Responding to the needs of users of medicines and medicinal products for human and veterinary use, social and health care professionals and veterinarians is a primary sustainability goal in our official duties.

Alongside other central government, Fimea is committed to promoting in its activities the global UN Sustainable Development Goals (Agenda 2030) that guide sustainable development globally. From the perspective of its activities and stakeholders, Fimea has identified the four most essential UN SDGs that it can particularly influence through its activities.

  • Goal 2. End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture
  • Goal 3. Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages
  • Goal 9. Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation
  • Goal 12. Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns

Fimea’s sustainability reports are linked not only to these four UN SDGs but also to Fimea’s strategy. Fimea’s sustainability policies are:

  • Meeting the demand for medicines and medical products
  • Safe medicinal treatment of production animals, environmental protection and reduction of national drug wastage
  • Supporting innovation and developing infrastructure
  • Safety of medicines and the production of reliable medicines information

The report is published annually and its content is developed as Fimea’s sustainability work progresses.
