Read the final statement issued by the Finnish NCP concluding the specific instance - 22 December 2006

In June 2006, the Finnish NCP received a request for review by the NGO Center for Human Rights and Environment (CEDHA) alleging that Finnvera Oyj had breached the general policies, disclosure, environment, and combating bribery provisions of the Guidelines in Uraguay. The NGO had concerns regarding the financial activities of the company in relation to the Botnia SA paper mill project.

After undertaking an initial assessment the Finnish NCP found that the request didn't merit further consideration. The reasons are outlined in their final statement issued in October 2006 which concluded the specific instance.
