Finland along with the other Nordics are serious about Climate Change. We have not bee twiddling our thumbs this last 40 years we have been making a difference.
We have great insulation in our homes and other buildings.
We have triple glazing.
We have district heating and district cooling (less but growing).
We use ground heat, solar panels and wind – we have several pilots projects using wave power.
Even though the government is a bit slow, cities here are competing hard for their place in the sun – or for the best and most efficient sustainable energy solutions.
Even more interesting is that big industry has set up its own powerful lobby group Climate Leadership Council www.clc.fi that has delivered a more radical plan for climate change than that proposed by the Finnish government.
What’s good for business is also great for the globe and vice versa…
