History


Sustainable Initiative was officially formed as a political party in June 2019 ahead of that year's elections.[2] Prior, it had been an unregistered political movement.[3]

The party received 8.3% of the vote in those elections, winning two of the 30 seats in Parliament,[4] and improving their result from the 2015 elections by over 7 percentage points. In the municipal election the party won in total of four seats: two in Mariehamn, one in Lemland and one in Hammarland.[5]

It is a member party of the Centre Group of the Nordic Council.[6]
