ETS position paper of the Alliance of energy intensive industries

The 2030 climate and energy framework must guarantee predictability for industry by setting the principles for measures against carbon and investment leakage now.

The undersigned manufacturing industries are the foundation of Europe’s economic fabric, drivers of jobs and growth in Europe. We represent over 30.000 companies in the EU with more than 4 million direct jobs, and around 30 million jobs in our manufacturing value chains.

The EU should focus on promoting recovery and growth of industrial production in Europe, in line with the objective to reinstate industry’s share of EU GDP to 20% by 2020 . European industries need a stable and long term legislative framework that effectively combines EU climate ambition with EU industrial competitiveness.
