Study on how emissions trading will influence Akzo Nobel in Stenungsund


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.
