Finland ranked number one in the United Nations' and the Bertelsmann Foundation's 2021 report on sustainable development. Finland achieved the top position for the first time, but it has been in the top three in earlier years, together with two other Nordic countries, Denmark and Sweden. The comparison assesses different countries’ progress on implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the agenda's Sustainable Development Goals.
According to the report, Finland has either achieved or is close to achieving the United Nations' sustainable development goals related to poverty alleviation, health, education, water, energy, reducing inequality, peace, and the rule of law. The country's remaining challenges are related to climate change, sustainable consumption and production patterns and halting biodiversity loss.
