“The Government is committed to taking action that will create a path towards a carbon neutral Finland by 2035. Climate change is the greatest threat to humankind. Instead, the fight against climate change offers opportunities for Finland to create viability, growth, employment and wellbeing. The transition into a carbon neutral society will be carried through in a way that is socially and regionally fair and just,” said Sanna Marin, Finland’s Prime Minister. When Marin was sworn in as Finland’s prime minister in December 2019, she was 34 years old, the youngest prime minister in the world.

Marin scored high marks for how she navigated the country through the first wave of Covid-19 infections in the spring of 2020.
