BRUSSELS, 4 April – The next step in the EU ETS reform process gets underway today, as discussions begin on a compromise package between the European Parliament, the European Council and the European Commission.
The so-called trilogue aims to conclude before the European legislative summer recess in July.
Commenting on the start of the talks, IETA’s European policy director Julia Michalak says:
“We are encouraged by the momentum from action this year in the European Parliament and the Council. We urge policymakers to complete work on the compromise promptly, which will help Europe advance its climate leadership and boost market confidence.
“Maintaining a strong EU ETS as the cornerstone of Europe’s climate change action agenda must be at the heart of the package, combined with measures to ensure that European businesses do not face a competitive disadvantage in the future.”More information on IETA’s position on the EU ETS Reform is available on our website.
