EuLA (2015). Position paper on MSR for the post-2020 EU ETS
In the frame of the current discussions within the European Parliament on the proposal from the European Commission to create a Market Stability Reserve for the EU ETS after 2020, EuLA developped a position paper supporting policy options that ensure a stable and predictable legal framework on reducing CO2 emissions without damaging industrial competitiveness. Our position addresses the current inefficiencies of the system in a holistic approach, allowing to take into account the specific needs of the energy and carbon intensive industries exposed to a risk of de-localisation of their production outside of EU.
The European Lime association believes that the EU ETS should remain a cost-effective market based instrument, and should support the growth of the industry while providing an incentive to reduce the emissions according to the best available techniques.
