Finlands greenhouse gas emissions grew
24 May 2017
According to Statistics Finlands instant preliminary data, the total emissions of greenhouse gases in 2016 corresponded with 58.8 million tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2 eq.). Emissions grew by six per cent compared with the previous year but were still 18 per cent lower than in 1990. The biggest reasons for the growth in the emissions were the increase in coal consumption and the decline in the proportion of biofuels used in transport. Emissions from the non-emissions trading sector went up by five per cent compared to 2015 and exceeded the annual emission allocation set by the EU by 1.0 million tonnes of CO2 equivalent.
