Metsähallitus’ Strategy and Values
After the reform of the Act on Metsähallitus, the policy definitions in the Government Programme and other changes in Metsähallitus' operating environment, Metsähallitus renewed its strategy for the period 2016–2020. The Government Programme defines objectives not only for Metsähallitus but also separately determined targets for business operations and Parks & Wildlife Finland, from the additional use of wood to water protection and international nature tourism.
The expectations of the owner, customers and other stakeholders are many and varied. Metsähallitus is required to generate revenues for the government, to engage in regional development, to provide and promote services and well-being for citizens, to safeguard biodiversity and, for example, to implement climate benefits.
Metsähallitus intends to meet these targets and expectations by leading the way in versatile bio-economy.
In the coming years, we will plan and execute our work and activities in such a way that
- We guarantee the optimum sustainable return on state-owned land and water areas over generations, enhancing wellbeing and regional vitality.
- As a pioneer in broad-based bio and circular economy, we work to reconcile the expectations on state-owned land and water areas in a responsible and interactive manner.
- We respond to global challenges by offering innovative and sustainable solutions. We safeguard biodiversity and act in a climate-wise manner.
- We offer services to everybody on a non-discriminatory basis. We develop our operations on the basis of customer-orientation, accessibility of digital services and partnerships.
- We operate in a uniform and efficient manner, supported by knowledge-based and ethical management practices as well as a diverse work community.
We do everything we can to promote the responsible use and management of natural resources as well as biodiversity and cultural heritage. Customers, partners and colleagues are important to us.
We do important work for the good of Finland as a whole, Finnish society and nature. This is a force that helps bring together many different hopes and goals, even those conflicting with one another.
Our work produces results. These results offer both tangible and intangible benefits, which are sustainably achieved in state-owned areas of land and water, passed on from generation to generation.
