Graph 1 Planetary boundaries are already partly overstepped
Picture 1. The planetary boundaries (green line) have already been overstepped in climate change, biodiversity loss, flows of nitrogen and phosphorus, and land use change. Planetary boundary processes are interlinked. Source: Steffen et al. 2015 © SYKE & SITRA
Graph 2 3 Not a single country has achieved a high level of well-being in an ecologically sustainable way
Picture 2. (left) The social and ecological sustainability level of the countries of the world. Not a single country has achieved a high level of human well-being in an ecologically sustainable manner. It would be the most sustainable and fair for a country to achieve well-being without exceeding the planetary boundaries (lower right on the picture). The position of the country data points is approximative. Source: O’Neill et al. 2018 © SYKE & SITRA

Picture 3. (right) Social goals that have been achieved by Finland and how they relate to the limits of the planet. Finland has achieved the social goals in all areas except employment. However, Finnish consumption is not sustainable; the environmental impact of per capita consumption exceeds the fair level. Source: O’Neill et al. 2018 © SYKE & SITRA

Graph 4 Finland has outsourced some of its environmental impact
Picture 4. Cropland area required around the world by Finnish food consumption. Clearing forest for agricultural use leads to the risk of global species loss especially in tropical countries. For example, areas where coffee and cocoa are grown have many endemic species that are susceptible to extinction. Source: Sandström et al. 2017 © SYKE & SITRA
