In 2005–2018, the Foundation has launched over 30 Clean Baltic Sea projects, 21 of which have been completed. In collaboration with other stakeholders, in less than 10 years the eutrophicating phosphorus load of the Gulf of Finland alone has been cut by up to 75%. The ENSI service, which reduces the risk of oil spill accidents, was developed in the Foundation-led Tanker Safety project in 2009–2014, after which the further development of the service became the responsibility of the Finnish Transport Infrastructure Agency Väylä.
The John Nurminen Foundation works for the Baltic Sea in a way that brings results. The Foundation’s Clean Baltic Sea projects improve the status of the Baltic Sea by reducing the nutrient load and environmental risks faced by the sea. The work is steered by measurable results and impact.
