Model roadmaps for implementing effective climate measures

The model roadmaps include themed collections of measures required to be carried out to achieve carbon neutrality and significant emission reductions. Many climate change mitigation measures also promote adaptation to and preparation for weather extremes and other detrimental effects, such as heatwaves and insect damage, that are worsening due to global warming.

Utilising individual model roadmap measures and efforts in regional and municipal climate plans and roadmaps always requires considering the characteristics of the area in question. Climate change mitigation efforts can only be planned if current emission volumes in individual sectors as well as po-tential for emission reductions in the area are known.

The measures in the model roadmap are based on emission reduction studies and example measures selected from the roadmaps of seven regions (in Finnish).The abbreviations of the regions used in the model roadmap tables are as follows:

  • South Karelia (SK)
  • Pirkanmaa (PI)
  • Päijät-Häme (P-H)
  • North Ostrobothnia (NO)
  • Satakunta (S)
  • Uusimaa (UM)
  • Southwest Finland (SF) 

In the model roadmaps, emission reduction measures are defined as actions that lead to direct emission reductions when taken. Tasks that support and enable direct emission reductions have been listed under these measures. The impact of the model roadmap measures on emission reductions or carbon sinks have been evaluated on a scale of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the strongest impact. The bases of the assessment have been presented on theme-specific basis. Measures that support resilience have been marked in the tables with the # symbol.

It is easiest to scroll through the model roadmap emission reduction measures in full screen mode. This can be done by clicking on the arrows at the bottom-right corner of the Power BI window below.
