Greenhouse gas emissions produced by Finnish residents and other emissions into air not included in greenhouse gases decreased in 2017. Greenhouse gas emissions produced by Finnish residents in Finland and abroad amounted to 59 million tonnes, which was almost five per cent less than in the previous year. The drop was biggest in land transport, where emissions decreased by 10 per cent compared to 2016. Carbon dioxide emissions from biomass, in turn, grew by five per cent from the previous year, being 40 million tonnes. Other emissions than greenhouse gas emissions also decreased. The biggest drop of nearly 11 per cent was seen in sulphur dioxide emissions.
