Finlands greenhouse gas emissions 2019 to the EU and the UNFCCC
19 Mar 2021
In 2019, Finland's greenhouse gas emissions without the LULUCF sector amounted to 53.1 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (mil. t CO2 eq.), being 18.2 million tonnes less than in the comparison year 1990. These total emissions remained more or less unchanged compared with the preliminary data published in December 2020. Emissions not included in the EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) exceeded the annual emission allocations set by the EU by 0.6 million tonnes of CO2 equivalent. The net sink of the land use, land use change and forestry (LULUCF) sector, that is, the sum of removals and emissions, amounted to 14.7 million tonnes CO2 equivalent in 2019, but these data are not included in total emissions. The data published now are based on the reporting of emission data to the EU and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

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.
