2030 framework for energy puts us on the right path – CBI
The CBI commented on the European Commission’s proposals on a 2030 framework for climate and energy policies.
Katja Hall, CBI Chief Policy Director, said:
“This package puts us on the right path to delivering a competitive, low-carbon future. It’s important that member states have flexibility to decarbonise in the most cost-effective way.
“An emissions reduction target of 40% is ambitious and credible, and reflects what we have been calling for. But targets are only as good as the policies that support them, and the EU Emissions Trading System must continue to be the cornerstone of the EU’s climate policy.
“We need a secure and competitive energy framework, which fully supports energy intensive industries to deliver economic growth and our low-carbon transition.
“It is now imperative that we get political agreement on these proposals, which will provide some much needed certainty for investors.”
