eGovernment statistics

Helsinki, 3 June, 2005 — Turnover of Environmental Technology Over Two Billion

In 2003 the turnover of environmental technology amounted to around 2.1 billion euros in Finland. Since the end of the 1990s, the turnover in this sector has increased by approximately 16 per cent in Finland.

With the activities of Finnish firms abroad included, the turnover of Finnish environmental technology totals close to 3.4 billion euros.

This information is given by recent statistics by Statistics Finland, which were compiled as a joint venture financed by the Ministry of Trade and Industry and the Ministry of the Environment.

No significant growth has taken place in employment in the environmental technology sector, but the share of exports of the turnover of environmental technology is still considerable: nearly half of the domestic turnover.
