Energy and environment issues increasingly important

Energy fuels the fire of economy. Technological industries use up a significant part of Finland’s energy. In order to minimise costs and to prevent climate change, it’s essential to pay constant attention to energy efficiency. .

Technology industries use up about half of all of Finland’s energy. The main energy-dominated technology industries are metals industry, chemical industry, and forest industry, with 80­-90% of their produce exported. Approximately 40% of Finland’s energy consumption is tied to export. Finland produces steel for 30 million people and paper and wood products for 100 million people.
