This report addresses how the emissions trading
within the European Union that commenced on 1 January 2005 will influence the
Akzo Nobel site in Stenungsund. The overall aim was to investigate how the
issue has been dealt with so far, what is left to be done and how it will
influence the company in the future.
The focus of the study was to estimate the financial effect of the emissions
trading by working with different scenarios and to describe routines for the
company’s future work. Other issues assessed were the possible development of
the emission trading scheme in the future trading periods and possible
coordination within the Akzo Nobel group.
