The climate panel chooses independently topical themes that it addresses and is given assignments by key actors involved in the preparation of climate policy, such as ministries and working groups. Potential topics to be examined include, for example, climate legislation, cost efficiency and acceptability of climate policy measures, promotion of practical energy efficiency measures and global indirect climate effects that impact Finland and adaptation to these effects.
