28 ROE and ROCE Rolling 12 months % ROEROCE

29 Emissions trading for air traffic EU air traffic accounts for only 0.5% of all CO2 emissions in the world Finnair in favour of emissions trading principles EU proposal sets airlines at somewhat unequal footings depending on route network structure Should be global Competitively neutral Investments already made in new technology should be taken into account Open emissions trading

30 Customers can already make environmental choices when flying Choose an airline with a modern fleet Fly in the right direction all the way, without unnecessary stopovers. Shorter flight routes result in less emissions Avoid large, congested airports By making these choices, fuel consumption and emissions can drop by at best 30%!
