Low-carbon roadmaps 2035
The Government will work to ensure that Finland is carbon neutral by 2035 and carbon negative soon after that. In accordance with the Government Programme, sectoral low-carbon roadmaps will be drawn up in cooperation with companies and organisations in the relevant sectors.
A dramatic change is required for the transition to a low-carbon society. The roadmaps will provide a more detailed picture of the scale and cost of the measures required. Transition to a low-carbon society offers Finland significant opportunities for exporting its solutions to other countries in need of similar solutions.
In October 2020, the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment published a report summarising the main results of the sectoral roadmaps. The report was published in English on 15 February 2021. The report includes summaries of published roadmaps, key conclusions of the project, a description of the work process and estimates of further work. It also explores how the roadmaps will be utilised in climate and energy work towards a low-carbon Finland.
