Position paper

The Alliance of European Energy-Intensive Industries (AEII) welcomes the efforts recently deployed to link the EU ETS with the forthcoming Australian ETS. Climate change is a global concern which requires coordinated global action. Furthermore, the linking is a first – albeit modest – step on the way to global carbon pricing. In this regards it provides a unique opportunity to harmonise climate change policies with a view to placing global
competitors on an equal footing.
