EUROPIA position on the proposed Directive amending Directive 2003/87/ECso as to improve and extend the greenhouse gas emission allowance trading the Community – COM(2008)16, January 23, 2008 – EU ETS

Posted on 01/04/2008 in Position Paper

EUROPIA shares the EU concerns around GHG emissions and acknowledges the need to take effective global action to reduce these emissions. We particularly welcome the clear recognition in the Commission’s Climate Change and Renewable Energy package of the need for a balanced approach to the three pillars of energy policy, namely competitiveness, sustainability and security of supply.
