Finland, with a population of 5,520,314 and an urban population of 4,716,888, accounting for 85.44% of the total, has produced 37,602,328 tons of CO2 in 2022. This translates to a per capita CO2 emissions of 6.79 tons, indicating that each person generates approximately 6.79 tons of CO2 annually.
To assess the impact of economic activity on CO2 emissions, it is crucial to consider the Carbon Intensity of GDP. In Finland, the Carbon Intensity of GDP is 0.14 kg of CO2 per International dollar ($USD) of economic output, which is lower than both the USA (0.3 kg) and China (0.57 kg).
This measurement indicates that Finland’s economic activity produces relatively fewer CO2 emissions per unit of economic output compared to these countries.
These figures highlight the significant contribution of Finland’s population to CO2 emissions and emphasize the importance of implementing measures to reduce carbon footprints.
Finland Total CO2 emissions by source
How much do coal, oil, gas, cement and flaring contribute to CO2 emissions in Finland?
In 2022, Finland’s total CO2 emissions reached 37,602,328 metric tons. The primary sources of these emissions were coal, accounting for 12,291,231 metric tons, and oil, with 19,825,690 metric tons.
Gas contributed 4,266,560 metric tons, while cement and flaring made smaller contributions of 569,667 and 75,760 metric tons, respectively.
These figures highlight the significant role of coal and oil in Finland’s economy and their impact on CO2 emissions.
The relationship between these emissions and Finland’s GDP remains a crucial aspect to consider for sustainable development.
