Cerame-Unie submitted its feedback on the proposal for a Regulation establishing a Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (‘CBAM’).

 

To strengthen the CBAM proposal, the ceramic industry calls on the Commission to address some key aspects which are explained in more detail below. In particular, we believe that the Commission should: 

- Make CBAM applicable only to sectors where it is appropriate and feasible, following a transition period
- Maintain free allowances for the time necessary to allow the deployment of low carbon technologies and until CBAM has proved to be effective
- Need to find a solution for carbon leakage risk associated with EU exports
