Revisions in these statistics

During the Kyoto Protocol's second commitment period (2013 to 2020), the calculation of emissions and commitments has changed due to the new, internationally agreed methodological and reporting guidelines for greenhouse gas emissions. Compared with the previous releases, Finland’s emissions level has risen due to said calculation reasons by one to three per cent, depending on the year. The emissions level is influenced, for example, by the revised GWP (global warming potential) values used in commensurating greenhouse gases, the changes made to the allocation of emissions and to the methods. The inventory figures calculated for the first reporting for the Kyoto Protocol's second commitment period are considered as the first release for the statistics.
