Reporting starts for the Kyoto Protocol's second commitment period
12 Feb 2015
The Kyoto Protocol's second commitment period, 2013 to 2020, has started. Under the Protocol, the EU has a shared reduction commitment of 20 per cent in comparison with the emissions in 1990. According to the preliminary data published by Statistics Finland, Finlands total emissions of greenhouse gases in 2013 corresponded with 63.2 million tonnes of carbon dioxide. Emissions grew by approximately one per cent compared with the previous year and were 12 per cent lower than in 1990. The whole time series of greenhouse gas emissions for the years 1990 to 2013 has been updated to correspond to the changed reporting requirements. Statistics Finland will publish revised emissions data on 15 April 2015.
