    The Index of Sustainable Economic Welfare (ISEW) and Genuine Progress Indicator (GPI) are intended to broaden the perspective of conventional, industrial production-oriented Gross Domestic Product (GDP) -measure used currently as societal steering instrument. ISEW/GPI -measures are aimed to indicate progress towards sustainable economic well-being. In Finland there has been growing political interest towards broader measures of societal development and progress. National GPI and ISEW -timeseries as well as for 19 regions where compiled in late 2018 by assignment of Finnish parliament. Their possible applications in government budget process are also under consideration.
