The work of our experts results in more than 200 reports, studies, and analyses every year. Most of them are published and available on our website.
Sometimes our work resonates and has a direct impact on the public agenda. At other times, it contributes more subtly to the making of superior decisions within a company, organisation or courtroom.
On 22 June 2016, the Helsinki District Court gave its ruling in the so-called wood cartel case, where Metsähallitus, a state owned forest owner, claimed 159.4m euros jointly from three forest companies, Stora Enso, UPM and Metsäliitto. This is the largest damage case in the Finnish history and many factual and expert economist witnesses were heard in the court. The court, however, dismissed the claim in its entirety. In its ruling, the court argued that the economic evidence did not support the claimant's claim of economic damage. In the case, Copenhagen Economics prepared economic analysis and evidence for Stora Enso.
Stora Enso is a leading provider of renewable solutions in packaging, biomaterials, wooden constructions and paper on global markets.
On 20 April 2016 and on 24 may 2016, the Finnish Consumer and Competition Agency and the European Commission approved the acquisition of Onninen, a mostly wholesale construction and building services supplier in Finland, Nordic area and the Baltics, by Kesko Corporation, the largest construction and building retailer in Finland. Kesko is a trading sector company with around 900 grocery stores in Finland, mostly in the supermarket and hypermarket segments.
Copenhagen Economics has supported Kesko and its legal team with independent economic analysis in the discussions with the FCCA.
As in all other countries, exploration for minerals and metals in Sweden has been hit hard by declining commodity prices in recent years. Still, we find that investing in Swedish mining is attractive due to good physical potential, cheap and easy access to key inputs of energy and infrastructure and stable and reliable regulatory and fiscal regimes.
That said, a trend of rising opposition towards mining and recent court rulings might prove to increase uncertainty and unpredictability of licensing procedures, especially harmful for long term and sunk investments in exploration and mining activities. Over time, failure to secure a pool of prospective mines may negatively affect the otherwise strong cluster of service and tech firms centred on Swedish mining. We suggest looking into incentive schemes for smaller exploration companies to maintain strong position.
