According to a recent calculation by the Finnish Environment Institute (SYKE), municipal climate emissions decreased by 5.5 per cent in 2019 compared to the previous year. The biggest decrease occurred in the emissions from electricity usage as the emissions from electricity production dropped significantly in Finland. The emissions from district heating, industry and road traffic also decreased, whereas the development of the emissions from machinery, agriculture and water transport was not as positive. However, there are considerable differences between municipalities in the sectoral distribution of emissions and their development.
