Freedom of expression and freedom of the press are guaranteed and respected. The media landscape is diverse; Scandinavian companies are predominant. Press: The print media market is completely privately owned and is determined by three newspaper groups: Postimees (majority owned by the Norwegian Schibsted Group), Ekspress (Hans H. Luik and the Swedish media holding Bonnier each with 50%) and Westi, which publishes the major Russian-language newspapers. The three largest national daily newspapers are »Postimees« (Postman, Tartu), »Eesti Päevaleht« (Estonian daily newspaper, Tallinn) and the tabloid »SL / Öhtuleht« (evening paper).

About 85% of the electricity produced comes from oil shale incineration (thermal power plants in Narva). Other local energy sources are peat and wood. Both the burning of the oil shale and the peat extraction (mainly because of the large-scale lowering of the groundwater) is associated with considerable damage to the environment. In order to eliminate the high environmental pollution, a cost-intensive renovation of the mining areas and energy companies required by the EU is necessary. The development of a sustainable energy industry began with the construction (completion in 2012) of an offshore wind farm with an output of 1,000 MW off the island of Hiiumaa. In addition, the connection to the (Northern) European power grid, which has existed since 2006, is being expanded further.
30% of the workforce is employed in industry, generating 28.2% of GDP (2014).

The most important industries are food (including fish processing), wood processing, paper, textile (cotton processing in Narva and Tallinn), electrical engineering, chemical and leather industries. Foreign investments were mainly made in the electronic industry (IT, communication technologies), wood processing and the textile industry. 40% of total industrial production is concentrated in the Tallinn capital region. Other industrial centers are the port city of Pärnu and the cities of Narva, Kohtla-Järve, Sillamäe.
