Official Statistics of Finland (OSF)
Statistics on greenhouse gases contain data on emissions and removals of greenhouse gases in Finland. Greenhouse gas inventory data are used to monitor national emission reduction measures and Finland's international reduction obligations. Proxy estimate, preliminary and final data are published annually.

Statistics Finland

Change

A new period starts in the reporting of greenhouse gas emissions and removals – the data are published calculated using the GWP factors of the IPCC's Fourth and Fifth Assessment Reports.

According to Statistics Finland's instant preliminary data, total greenhouse gas emissions without land use, land use change and forestry (LULUCF) sector in 2021 amounted to 47.7 million tonnes of CO₂ eq., which was 0.07 million tonnes less than in 2020. The land use sector (LULUCF) was for the first time a net source of emissions, 2.1 million tonnes of CO₂ eq.
