Emissions into air by industry

Producer: Statistics Finland

Latest release:
Greenhouse gas emissions of Finns fell in 2019 - emissions of impurities remained on level with the previous year
30 Sep 2021
Greenhouse gas emissions produced by Finns fell in 2019. At the same time, emissions of impurities remained mainly on level with the previous year. Greenhouse gas emissions in Finland and abroad amounted to 57 million tonnes, five per cent less than in the previous year. The main reason behind the fall was the nearly 15 per cent reduction in emissions from energy production, as the consumption of coal and peat diminished from the year before. The most significant reduction in emissions of air impurities was seen in sulphur dioxide emissions, which decreased by nearly ten per cent.

Description: In the statistics on emissions into air by industry, emissions are presented according to the industrial classification used in national accounts. In this way, the data on emissions into air can be connected direct to various monetary variables of national accounts. There are 14 emission components in all, from carbon dioxide and nitrogen oxides to fine particles and fluorinated greenhouse gases.
