Posted on 01/06/2006 in Position Paper

The member companies of the European Petroleum Industry Association (EUROPIA) welcome the opportunity to provide comments to the EU Commission on the Green Paper entitled “A European Strategy for sustainable, competitive and secure energy” – COM(2006) 105 – adopted on March 8, 2006. The oil industry is pleased with the Commission’s initiative to resume a long-standing consultation process that also builds on the Berlin Fossil Fuels Forum process to which the industry is actively contributing. The oil industry is particularly pleased to join the debate on the European Commission’s strategic objective to meet Europe’s need for secure long-term, competitively-priced energy while minimizing environmental impacts.
