Revisions in these statistics

The calculation of emissions has changed in 2015 due to the revised, internationally agreed methodological and reporting guidelines for greenhouse gas emissions. Compared with previously published data, Finland's emission level has risen by one to two per cent depending on the year due to the mentioned computational reasons. The changes in the emissions level are influenced, for example, by the revised GWP (global warming potential) values used in commensurating greenhouse gases and the allocation of emissions and the methodological changes made.
