Finland must prioritise several low-emission forms of energy that secure the operation of mills 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. For a long time, the forest industry has already reduced its carbon dioxide emissions, and this remains an objective in future.
Energy and the climate
The development of the forest industry requires a globally fair climate policy that does not weaken the sector’s competitiveness. As much as two thirds of Finland’s renewable energy is tied to the forest industry and the sector is continually developing its energy efficiency. Wood-based products are climate friendly and advance the bioeconomy.
