Greenhouse gases

Official Statistics of Finland (OSF)
Statistics on greenhouse gases contain data on emissions and removals of greenhouse gases in Finland. Greenhouse gas inventory data are used to monitor national emission reduction measures and Finland's international reduction obligations. Proxy estimate, preliminary and final data are published annually.


Statistics Finland


A new period starts in the reporting of greenhouse gas emissions and removals – the data are published calculated using the GWP factors of the IPCC's Fourth and Fifth Assessment Reports.
