Climate change will be a costly issue unless we manage to limit the global temperature increase to a maximum of 2° C. In Finland, rising temperatures and longer growth season may increase crop yields and growth rates of trees, but not without also increasing risks.

 

In practice all countries in the world gave their support to the efforts to limit the global temperature increase to a maximum of 2° C at the Paris climate conference. Methods to reduce emissions are being developed at an increasing rate, but the measures that have been agreed so far are not enough to reach this goal.

 

As such, all industries must be prepared to adapt to the gradually tightening emission limits. Agriculture and forestry sectors have the tools to reduce emissions from in particular soils.
