Greenhouse gas emissions went up by two per cent
12 Dec 2019
According to Statistics Finland's preliminary data, the total emissions of greenhouse gases in 2018 correspond with 56.4 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2 eq.), being 14.9 million tonnes less than in the comparison year 1990. Emissions grew by two per cent from the previous year. The growth in emissions was most affected by increased consumption of natural gas and peat. Emissions not included in the EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) remained at last years level and were 0.3 million tonnes above the emission allocations set by the EU. The data are based on the preliminary report to be submitted by Statistics Finland to the European Commission by 15 January 2020 concerning emissions in 2018.

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.
