The Finnish Environment Institute (SYKE) was established in 1995, at the same time when major structural changes were made in the Finnish environmental administration. SYKE is currently both a research institute and a centre for environmental expertise in Finland. SYKE’s expert services provide assistance on a wide range of environmental issues for administrators, local authorities, industries, firms and other organisations. SYKE closely monitors environmental trends and the state of the environment in Finland in co-operation with Finland’s thirteen regional environment centres. SYKE serves as the national environmental data centre in Finland. SYKE’s research and development programmes assess environmental problems from a multi-disciplinary perspective, by integrating socio-economic considerations into scientific research. The research and development programmes focus on a wide range of environmental issues, from global (e.g. climate change and loss of biodiversity), regional (e.g. acidification) or, in some cases, local issues (e.g. soil pollution).
