Government Foresight Report on Long-term Climate and Energy Policy: Towards a Low-carbon Finland
The Government adopted (15 October) the Foresight Report on Long-term Climate and Energy Policy. Setting a target to reduce Finland’s greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80 per cent from the 1990 level by 2050 as part of an international effort, the report marks out the road to a low-carbon Finland in 2050.
The Report aims to map out a variety of possible futures and to support preparedness for them by weighing up a number of different lines of action. Besides this, the report includes quantitative targets and sets out concrete guidelines for measures to be taken.
