Sustainability Development in VAE II 

Results from the Sustainability Survey among Visit Arctic Europe II companies. (n=90)
The aim was to map the ambitions in the companies in terms of working with sustainability, and to get an impression of their goals and priorities. The survey listed in total 10 subjects within sustainability, and they were asked to choose and describe the 3 that they want to work with in their company.
The survey shows that the overall “Top 3” priorities were; Buy as much as possible locally (41%), Reduce impact on nature and environment (38%) and Strengthen local culture, identity and traditions (38%).
