Committee for a Sustainable Nordic Region

The Committee for a Sustainable Nordic Region works on issues and cases involving the protection of the environment and nature and on questions of natural resources – including how they are used in agriculture, fisheries and forestry. Climate issues are also an important part of its work – including the consequences of climate change, which are having a particular impact on the most northerly parts of the Nordic Region, e.g. Greenland, where the ice is melting, but also have global consequences and cause climate refugees. The committee also deals with consumer rights, fisheries management, agricultural policy, food, nuclear safety, biodiversity and sustainability. In all of the areas mentioned above, the Committee for a Sustainable Nordic Region, focuses on both Nordic and global challenges and on potential solutions.
