First report on the National Library of Finland’s carbon footprint released

According to the first carbon footprint assessment of the National Library of Finland, most of the Library’s emissions in 2019 were generated by procurement and energy consumption at its facilities. In the coming years, the intention is to investigate the carbon footprint of other operations, including digital services and digitisation. This requires close cooperation with the University of Helsinki and the CSC – IT Centre for Science.

The National Library’s goal is to be carbon neutral by 2030.
