In 2015, Finland's greenhouse gas emissions amounted to 55.6 million tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2 eq.), being 16 million tonnes less than in the base year 1990. The trend of emissions has been falling since 2004. Compared with 2014, total emissions decreased by six per cent and emissions from the non-emissions trading sector by one per cent. Emissions from the non-emissions trading sector were below the annual emission allocations set by the EU for 2015 by 0.8 million tonnes. The data are based on the preliminary report to be submitted by Statistics Finland to the European Commission by 15 January 2017 concerning emissions in 2015.
