Environmental charge

The new Environmental Protection Act (527/2014) and the new Environmental Protection Decree (713/2014) came into force on 1 September and 10 September 2014, respectively. The reform has brought the Environmental Protection Act up to date and in line with a more refined interpretation of the provisions of the constitution, and with the reformed legislation of the European Union. At the same time, some reforms have been implemented to improve the functioning of the permit and notification system of the Environmental Protection Act. With the new act, the monitoring of environmental permits has become subject to a charge, which results in significant additional costs for businesses.

The latest changes in legislation entered into force between 2014 and 2016, and they have influenced the running of daily business in our industry. In addition, the EU-level REACH regulation has tightened the requirements for the traceability of raw materials, increased the costs for the disposal of waste generated in our line of business, and made the requirements for final waste disposal sites stricter.

Hot-dip galvanising as an industry is a major user of electricity, and a change made to the Electricity Market Act in 2013 obligates electricity distribution companies to improve the safety and reliability of electricity distribution. A significant number of the related changes must be in place as early as 2019. For this reason, electricity distribution companies have started making significant improvements to their transmission networks, for example, through undergrounding. The costs caused by the actions taken to improve reliability will eventually be paid by the end customers using electricity in the area of each electricity distribution company.

For the reasons presented above, we will, as of 10 October 2016, introduce a separate environmental charge, which is calculated from the total invoice amount excluding tax, and added as a separate line on the invoice. The environmental charge is 3.3% of the total invoice amount, and the percentage rate is flat, regardless of the total.

During the past year, we have put a lot of effort into developing our expertise and our processes. An even better consideration of environmental issues and our responsible way of doing business will ensure fully competitive products for our customers in the future. Aurajoki is included in the Tilaajavastuu.fi portal (as a company that complies with the "Contractor's Obligations Act"[M1] ), which is an indication of the way in which we deal with our social obligations.

We will start applying the environmental charge to new orders and annual contracts as of 10 October 2016.
