Greenhouse gas emissions fell and emissions not included in the EU Emissions Trading System on the target path

According to Statistics Finland's preliminary data, the total emissions of greenhouse gases in 2017 correspond with 55.5 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2 eq.), being 15.8 million tonnes less than in the comparison year 1990. Emissions went down by almost five per cent from the previous year. The fall in emissions was most influenced by the decreased consumption of the main fossil fuels and the increased share of biofuels used in traffic. Emissions not included in the EU Emissions Trading System went down by two per cent from 2016, being on level with the emission allocations units set by the EU. The data are based on the preliminary report on emissions in 2017 to be submitted by Statistics Finland to the European Commission by 15 January 2019.

Description: The statistics are compiled from emissions data submitted to the EU and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Annual reporting of emissions of the greenhouse gases under the Kyoto Protocol to the Secretariat of the UNFCCC comprises emission and removal estimates in common reporting format (CRF tables) and a related report (National Inventory Report). In addition to the UNFCCC and the Kyoto Protocol supplementing it, greenhouse gases must be reported yearly to the EU. Statistics Finland is the national entity responsible for the greenhouse gas inventory in Finland.
