Position paper

The recent initiatives instigated by the European Commission - Market Stability Reserve, 2030 framework, post 2020 carbon leakage - provide an ideal opportunity for a holistic debate on EU post-2020 climate and energy policies that extends beyond marginal adjustments to existing policy instruments.


In this context, Cerame-Unie issued a position paper calling on EU institutions to ensure that post 2020 climate and energy policies preserve the competitiveness of European industry in order to foster growth, avoid carbon and investment leakage and favour the development of breakthrough technologies supporting the transition to a low-carbon economy. The position paper is in line with the letter addressed from the European Alliance of Energy Intensive Industries to European institutions in view of the European Council meeting of 23-24 October.
