Notes
  • This document examines Finland’s policy on natural and environmental resource management. In many fields, progress has been made and pollution curbed. However, there is still room for improvement with regard to cost-effectiveness. Economic evaluation of the measures planned in various fields should accordingly be more systematic. Until now, pollution abatement has been achieved largely through regulation; given the likelihood that very few least-cost options remain, it will be even more important to make wider use of economic instruments to minimise the cost of future measures. In order to ensure that Finnish enterprises remain competitive, energy and fuel taxes are heavier on households than on businesses (in particular the more energy-intensive ones, such as the wood and paper-pulp industries and the electricity sector). Restoring the balance in this area would bring about a marked improvement in the costeffectiveness of Finland’s policy to reduce CO2 emissions, and foster ...

Dans de nombreux domaines, des progrès ont été réalisés et la pollution a été réduite. Toutefois, des progrès restent à faire pour augmenter l'efficacité par rapport aux coûts. A cette fin, l'évaluation économique des mesures envisagées dans les différents domaines devrait être plus systématique. La réduction de la pollution a été obtenue jusqu'à présent principalement par des mesures réglementaires; les options réductions les moins coûteuses étant désormais probablement épuisées, une plus large utilisation des instruments économiques s'avèrera d'autant plus importante pour minimiser les coûts des mesures à venir. Par ailleurs, dans le souci de préserver la compétitivité des entreprises finlandaises, la fiscalité sur l'énergie et les carburants pèse plus sur les ménages que sur les entreprises (en particulier celles fortement consommatrices d'énergie, telles que ...
