Inventory submissions

The annual reporting of the greenhouse gas inventory consists of a National Inventory Report (NIR) (pdf) and standardized reporting tables (CRF tables (xlsx)).

Latest submission (data from 1990 to 2021):

The National Inventory Report includes information on the development and sources of greenhouse gas emissions and removals, the methods, assumptions and data sources used in the calculations, recalculations, uncertainty assessment and quality assurance of the reporting country.

The actual emission data according to the Climate Convention are compiled into CRF tables by sector, source and gas as well as background data used in the calculation. Previous years CRF tables (15th April 2022 submission) are available in the UNFCCC submissions site.

SEF tables include information on holdings of the Kyoto units in the Finnish registry as well as information on transfers of the units to and from other Parties of the Kyoto Protocol.
