01 Oct 2020
Greenhouse gas emissions produced by Finnish residents rose in 2018. At the same time, emissions of air pollutants decreased. Greenhouse gas emissions in Finland and abroad amounted to 60 million tonnes, which was almost two per cent more than in the previous year. The most significant contributor to the growth was the eight per cent increase in emissions from energy production compared with 2017. Carbon dioxide emissions from biomass, which are not counted as greenhouse gas emissions, grew by three per cent and amounted to 42 million tonnes. Of the emissions of air pollutants, nitrogen dioxide emissions decreased most, by seven per cent, and sulphur dioxide emissions, by six per cent.

Description: In the statistics on emissions into air by industry, emissions are presented according to the industrial classification used in national accounts. In this way, the data on emissions into air can be connected direct to various monetary variables of national accounts. There are 14 emission components in all, from carbon dioxide and nitrogen oxides to fine particles and fluorinated greenhouse gases.
