Greenhouse gas emissions decreased, the emission allocation was still exceeded
24 May 2018
According to Statistics Finlands instant preliminary data, the total emissions of greenhouse gases in 2017 corresponded with 56.1 million tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2 eq.). Emissions fell by almost five per cent compared with the previous year and were on level with 2015. The fall in emissions was most influenced by the decreased consumption of the main fossil fuels and the increased share of biofuels in traffic. Emissions outside the EU emissions trading system went down by two per cent from 2016, but they exceeded the emission allocation set by the EU for the second time.

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.
