The Finnish Forest Industries says Finland can affect the competitiveness of domestic industry with its own decisions. The organisation maintains it is essential for the forest industry that the emissions trade compensation scribed in the government programme be fully put to use. The purpose of the compensation is that energy-intensive industries can be reimbursed for the expense increases caused by the EU emissions trade. If the compensation will be implemented only partially, Finnish industries will become less competitive in the future.
