Finland's greenhouse gas emissions have remained low
22 May 2014
According to Statistics Finlands proxy estimate, the total emissions of greenhouse gases in 2013 corresponded with 60.6 million tonnes of carbon dioxide. The emissions remained almost unchanged from the year before. In the energy sector, the use of hard coal increased but the consumption of peat, oil and natural gas decreased. In 2013, emissions outside the emissions trading scheme were around six per cent below the target set by the EU. The net sink of the Land Use, Land-Use Change and Forestry (LULUCF) sector has decreased by one-third as a result of increased fellings.
