Brussels, 16 March 2015 |Europex supports the proposal to bring the EU ETS cap in line with the EU’s 2050 longterm ambition and the adjustment of the linear reduction factor to achieve this. The unambiguous commitment to this ambitious reduction path also contributes to decreasing insecurity due to interaction effects with other policies. Of course, these interaction effects with other policies have only to a limited extent been the cause of the current allowance surplus in the ETS, which is mainly a result of economic development. EUROPEX welcomes the discussion on structural reform at the European level.
