If you have the choice, choose sustainable heating options for your home or mökki (wood pellets, etc.). If you don’t, you can always turn down the heating a couple degrees.
Try to live car-free. Or if you need one, choose low-emission electric, hybrid, biogas, RE85, or biodiesel. You can also take public transit and ride your bicycle.
