Environment

Who Are the People of Scandinavia?

As consumers, Scandinavians are in general very conscious whether a service or product takes efficiency, quality, price, design, and the environment into account.

Environment and CO2 Emissions?

Scandinavia: In the table below, is there an overview of the electric consumption and the carbon dioxide emissions of the four biggest Scandinavian countries.

Country Population Electricity – consumption Carbon dioxide emissions from consumption of energy
Denmark 5,569,077 (July 2014 est.) 33.56 billion kWh (2010 est.) 46.66 million Mt (2011 est.)
Finland 5,268,799 (July 2014 est.) 84.83 billion kWh (2010 est.)(2013 est.) 54.06 million Mt (2011 est.)
Norway 5,147,792 (July 2014 est.) 120.9 billion kWh (2010 est.) 45.87 million Mt (2011 est.)
Sweden 9,723,809 (July 2014 est.) 136 billion kWh (2010 est.) 53.15 million Mt (2011 est.)
Total Sum of Countries Sum: 25,709,477 Sum: 375.92 billion kWh Average: 199.74 million Mt

Other European nations: The tables below gives an overview of the electric conception and carbon dioxide emissions in Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, and the United Kingdom.

Country Population Electricity – consumption Carbon dioxide emissions from consumption of energy

The European Union: For comparison you can see the following table with an overview of the electric consumption and the carbon dioxide emissions from the whole European Union compared with Scandinavia.

Country Population Electricity – consumption Carbon dioxide emissions from consumption of energy
European Union 511,434,812 (July 2014 est.) 3.255 trillion kWh (2009 est.) 3.978 billion Mt (2012 est.)
European Union without:
Denmark, Finland,
Norway, and Sweden
485,725,335 (July 2014 est.) 2.879 trillion kWh (2012 est.) 3.778,26 billion Mt (2011-12 est.)
Difference: 199,74 million Mt.

Are the Scandinavian Environment healthy compared to the rest of the European Union?

The tables indicates that the Scandinavian carbon dioxide emissions from consumption of energy is roughly around the average.
Such concerns should be taken into account when a new market is explored.
