Metsä Board has started an environmental impact assessment (EIA) procedure for its folding boxboard mill that it is planning to build in Kaskinen, Finland.
The company submitted an EIA programme to the South Ostrobothnia Centre for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment (ELY Centre) on 22 December 2022 in accordance with the Act on Environmental Impact Assessment Procedure. The programme is open for public comment and opinion from 12th January to 10th February, 2023.
The EIA procedure addresses the environmental impacts of Metsä Board’s mill planned on the existing mill site in Kaskinen. The results of the impact assessment will be considered in the project’s ongoing planning and decision-making process. The assessment will provide information to support decision making, increase citizens’ access to information and their opportunities to influence the process.
