Energy and climate strategy
Finland’s long-term goal is a carbon-neutral society.
Approximately 80 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 preparation of the new energy and climate strategy will take into account and coordinate 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.
