Perspectives on the further development of national, EU and international climate policy

Tommi Ekholm, Aira Hast, Ilkka Savolainen

Research output: Book/ReportReport


The report considers three separate but interlinked topics that are very relevant in the development of climate policy, especially from the Finnish perspective. First, we assess the possible transition to a deeper emission reduction target at the EU level in 2020, namely -30% from 1990 levels, and focus our analysis at the cost-efficiency of emission reductions between different sectors. Next, we consider meeting the current Finnish 2020 target for the sectors not included in the EU Emission Trading Scheme, with more detail to actual emission reduction
measures, their costs and reduction potentials, and uncertainties on meeting the target and resulting costs. Our last topic discusses possible ways for including land-use and forestry sinks in the emission reduction targets, and potential implications from this.
