Energy and climate strategy

Finland’s long-term goal is a carbon-neutral society.

Approximately 75 per cent of greenhouse gases causing global warming result from the production and consumption of energy, including transport. Thus, energy and climate policies are closely connected.

Energy policy also covers other matters that are not directly included in climate policy, such as the security of energy supply, the functioning of the energy market and the promotion of renewable energy sources and energy efficiency.

It has become an established practice that each government draws up an energy and climate strategy.

The energy and climate strategy takes into account and coordinates the Government Programme’s energy and climate policies, the long- and medium-term climate change policy plans referred to in the Climate Change Act, and the EU’s energy and climate targets for 2030.

The preparation of the new energy and climate strategy has started by updating the scenario calculations and listing the new policy measures to be taken into the scenario calculation. The new Energy and Climate Strategy is expected to be completed in the spring of 2025.
