No 124, ETLA Brief from The Research Institute of the Finnish Economy

Abstract: Abstract The production of green goods in Finland’s manufacturing is concentrated within high-tech industries, particularly in the manufacturing of computer, electronic and optical products, as well as electrical equipment. Many firms tend to maintain a consistent portfolio of green products over time. Active expansion of green product portfolios is more common among large and multi-product firms. Furthermore, there is a positive correlation between labor productivity and production of green products. Although the production of green goods constitutes a relatively modest share of Finland’s overall manufacturing output, its role is steadily increasing over time.
