EU EMISSIONS TRADING SCHEME
The Energy Authority is Finland’s national emissions trading authority responsible for permits, registers and supervision, as well as for the auctioning of emissions allowances. It also approves emissions trading verifiers. The Finnish Transport and Communications Agency (Traficom) is responsible for emissions trading regarding air traffic and maritime in Finland.
Total emissions of Finnish installations within the scope of the EU’s emissions trading system were 20.3 million tonnes of carbon dioxide in 2021. Emissions increased by 3.8 per cent from 2020.
