The forest industry’s particle, sulphur and nitrogen oxide emissions into the air account for less than 10 per cent of Finland’s total emissions. In recent years, total reduced sulphur compounds have been reduced to virtually insignificant levels thanks to efficient collection and treatment systems.
The forest industry is continually working on improving environmental protection. Production facilities’ emissions have dropped to a fraction of what they used to be while production volumes have increased. Responsible operations and continual improvement in environmental performance will guarantee favourable developments in future as well.
