Results driven co-operation for societal well-being

The Finnish National Impact Investing Advisory Board represents all of the central actors for impact investing. The mission of the National Advisory Board is to promote the construction of the impact investing ecosystem in Finland. Its purpose is to provide support to all three ‘cornerstones’: the public sector, service providers and investors. A co-ordinating operator such as Sitra will be needed in the future as well with the purpose to convene various actors and to support operational practices.
