Achieving the carbon neutrality target for 2035 requires decisions from the Government that support the low-carbon nature of service sector companies. A key decision would be to reduce the electricity tax in the service sector. A reduction in electricity tax would also safeguard Finland's cost competitiveness and domestic jobs. In an increasingly competitive international environment, the service sector is currently paying 45 times more electricity tax than industry.
Returning the electricity tax of the service sector to the same level with industry would enable commerce to reach carbon neutrality by 2035
