Service sector organisations: Reducing the electricity tax in the service sector would accelerate the achievement of climate targets and strengthen competitiveness

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.
