This report commissioned by a Finnish public fund Sitra looks at the implications of the Paris Agreement on energy and climate policy in Finland and the European Union.

It finds the EU’s targets adopted for 2030 and 2050, and therefore also concerning Finland, are not ambitious enough to achieve the Paris Agreement goals. This implies that ambition levels need to be revised upwards in order to reach the goals set in the Paris Agreement.

The report is in English and contains a summary in Finnish.
