New emissions calculation system for all Finnish municipalities – an average emissions reduction of 15 per cent since 2005

Press release 2020-02-10 Finnish Environment Institute
Climate emissions have decreased in nearly all Finnish municipalities since 2005. The average decrease is 15 per cent. The reduction in municipal emissions has been driven by the decline in electricity emissions, reforms in district heating production and the construction of wind power. Emissions from oil-fired heating have dropped at a relatively similar pace in all municipalities, resulting in a significant impact at the national level.
