The National Emergency Supply Organisation (NESO) is a network that maintains and develops security of supply in Finland on the basis of public–private partnership initiatives. Its primary objective is to ensure the conditions necessary for the operations of organisations that are critical to security of supply. Hundreds of enterprises, government authorities, and associations from various sectors of society are active in NESO’s pursuit of shared goals.
The National Emergency Supply Organisation consists of the National Emergency Supply Agency, the National Emergency Supply Council, and the individual NESO sectors and pools.
The National Emergency Supply Agency is tasked with planning and measures related to developing and maintaining security of supply. The statutory duties of the agency include providing support for the pools’ and sectors’ operations. The National Emergency Supply Agency is led by a chief executive officer in accordance with guidelines issued by the NESA Board of Directors.
The National Emergency Supply Council is a body that assesses and reviews the general state of security of supply.
The general mandate for the NESO sectors is to steer, co-ordinate, and monitor preparedness in their respective fields and to determine the goals for the pools.
The business-driven NESO pools are responsible for operational preparedness in their fields. The pools are tasked with monitoring, analysing, planning, and preparing measures for the development of security of supply within their individual industries, as well as with determining which enterprises are critical to security of supply.
