ACCC – Atmosphere and Climate Competence Center

Using research and research data, the ACCC Flagship will create opportunities for Finland, the European Union and the world to reach the Paris climate targets. The Flagship aims to promote adaptation to climate change through sustainable, cost-effective and research-based solutions. The objective of the Flagship is to mitigate climate change by increasing forest and soil carbon sequestration and to improve global air quality.

Active cooperation between the Flagship and actors in the public and private sectors will facilitate effective climate policy and effective mitigation and adaptation measures at national and international level. The collaboration with the business sector will help create new practical solutions, such as atmospheric measurement instruments and climate and air quality analysis services. The Flagship’s key business partners represent the energy, transport, technology, food and forestry sectors.
