The Environment

In environmental protection, the objectives for the Ministry of the Environment are a good environmental status and a carbon-neutral society based on a circular economy. Our aim by 2030 is that:

  • Finland has significantly reduced its greenhouse gas emissions
  • The circular economy transforms our society
  • Natural resources are used sparingly and sustainably
  • Environmental risks have been identified and they are being managed

The means to reach these objectives include legislation, financial instruments, voluntary guidance and enhancing environmental awareness.
