Punching above our weight
How could Finland’s climate leadership benefit us and others?
Finland is a small country, but we have often been able to punch above our weight in many respects. This is also true when it comes to solving the climate crisis.
We have many important reasons to take a proactive role in working for the climate. Climate leadership is not a form of charity, but rather a matter of defending our long-term national interests.
Finland has an extensive set of tools for climate leadership. For example, we can inspire larger countries to take action through international climate initiatives and influence a large group of countries through the EU. Solutions developed by Finnish companies can substantially reduce emissions around the world while also generating export revenue for our country.
