Finland received the highest score of 80.75 in the Europe Sustainable Development Report 2021, meaning the country is making the best progress towards the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals in the EU.

The top three were compiled of only Nordic countries; Sweden was ranked second (80.57) and Denmark as the third (79.32).
