Helsinki Region Environmental Services Authority (HSY) collects data on climate indicators describing climate change mitigation. Climate indicators are used to monitor the progress in climate work in the Helsinki Metropolitan Area, which is part of the HSY’s role in monitoring the implementation of the Helsinki Metropolitan Area Climate Strategy 2030.
Key Climate Indicators
From the collection of 56 climate indicators, nine key indicators were selected together with the cities various administrative experts and Helsinki Region Transport (HSL) in 2011. The key indicators illustrate the progress of the climate work in the Helsinki Metropolitan Area, and show how the actions in different sectors of the Helsinki Metropolitan Area Climate Strategy 2030 are proceeding.
The key indicators are summarized in the indicator fan that illustrates the progress of a single indicator in traffic light colours. The traffic lights evaluate the direction of development, and the adequacy of the measures.
The colours of the key indicators describe the change from the previous year. Green says the situation has improved, for example, that greenhouse gas emissions have decreased, or that the amount of household waste has decreased. Yellow indicates that climate change mitigation has not advanced in that sector. Finally, red colour warns of climate-poor development.
