Climate and the Sámi people threatened as Finland attempts to hide its forest emissions

Finland’s industrial logging is already threatening the climate and its indigenous Sámi people, and yet last year the Finnish government confirmed its intention to increase harvesting the country’s forests by nearly 25 per cent  from present levels by the year 2030. The carbon dioxide released from the logging will be vast. 

This press release launches Fern's research Arctic Limits: How Finland’s forest policies threaten the Sámi and the climate, timed to input into European Parliament and European Council discussions on a new regulation on emissions from the forests and land use sector, known as LULUCF.
