A new proposal to calculate the carbon sink in forests is a relief for Finland

Summary:
The European Commission is now proposing a new way to calculate the forests’ carbon sink, based on total growth. A certain share of the growth would be the amount of allowed felling. The new proposal is 85 per cent. If the proposals by the Environmental Committee of the European Parliament or the European Commission on carbon sinks were accepted, Sweden would benefit from increased felling compared to Finland.
