children’s education, and use of renewable energy in India.
We promote the protection of the Baltic Sea by supporting
the John Nurminen Foundation, which works for its environ-

tity of both countries, and its well-being is important to each
Edita employee in Finland and Sweden. We have provided
the Foundation with printed materials free of charge and have
promoted its projects through our communication channels.
In India, we support Plan Finland’s model school project.

to provide all children, including girls, with an equal oppor-
tunity to benefit from high-quality education. In addition,
we also support un-supervised clean development mecha-
nism projects in India, as a way to compensate for our carbon-
dioxide emissions. India is a natural choice for us because our
Swedish associate company BrandSystems has operations in

Society and Edita Prima supports the Finnish Paralympics
