Finland's greenhouse gases made an upturn

In 2016, Finland's greenhouse gas emissions amounted to 58.9 million tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2 eq.), being 12.4 million tonnes less than in the comparison year 1990. Emissions according to the instant preliminary data became revised by 0.1 tonnes. Total emissions rose by six per cent from the previous year, the biggest reasons for the growth in the emissions being the increase in coal consumption and the decline in the proportion of biofuels used in transport. Emissions from the non-emissions trading sector went up by six per cent compared to 2015 and exceeded the annual emission allocation set by the EU by 1.1 million tonnes of CO2 eq. The data are based on the preliminary report to be submitted by Statistics Finland to the European Commission by 15 January 2018 concerning emissions in 2016.
