  • August 2022 research cruises: Gulf of Finland oxygen problems remain 2022-12-01
    The Finnish Environment Institute monitored the state of Finland's marine areas in August. The sea bottom in the deep parts of the Gulf of Finland were oxygen depleted, and the oxygen situation of the deep bottom areas of the coast had deteriorated, which was also reflected in higher levels of phosphate phosphorus and reduced numbers of benthic animals. The oxygen and benthic animal situations are clearly better in the Archipelago Sea than they are in the Gulf of Finland.
  • SYKE Policy Brief: Enhanced utilization of wastewater nutrients 2022-12-01
    Changes are needed in water management solutions. New technologies in the treatment of wastewater and sewage sludge would enable more efficient and more contaminant-free nutrient recovery, which would enable their utilisation in food production and industry. This would also reduce environmental impact, according to the SYKE Policy Brief released today. The publication is directed at decision-makers at the municipal and national levels.
  • Preliminary estimates: Municipalities’ climate emissions decreased by 3.1% in 2021 2022-11-22
    According to calculations by the Finnish Environment Institute (SYKE), municipalities’ total climate emissions decreased by 3.1 per cent in 2021 from the previous year. Emissions decreased in nearly all sectors, but an increase in heating demand slowed down the rate of reduction in emissions from heating buildings.
  • Landscape Day invites you to experience and to photograph landscape 2022-09-05
    Landscapes are an essential part of our well-being and the quality and diversity of our living environment. Thursday 20 October is International Landscape Day. The annually celebrated Landscape Day encourages everyone to participate in observing landscapes and in the decision-making concerning them. Take part in the programme to celebrate Landscape Day or create your own way to celebrate.
  • Regions play an important role in steering climate work – the most effective measures have been compiled into model road maps 2022-08-31
    Regional climate work supports and brings together local actors in the implementation of practical climate action. The Finnish Environment Institute together with the Natural Resources Institute Finland, the University of Tampere and the Finnish Meteorological Institute, examined the most effective climate emission reduction measures in the newly published climate road maps of seven regions in Finland. The aspects related to adaptation were also considered.
