Brussels, 8 May 2014 | Environmental markets, and specifically the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS), are the most efficient method to achieve environmental policy objectives. The main principles for the efficient functioning of environmental markets such as the ETS are predictability and credibility through stable framework conditions. These main principles must be adhered to for structural reform of the ETS and the wider 2030 climate and energy framework. EUROPEX, the Association of European Energy Exchanges, and its members actively engage in the further development of carbon and wider environmental markets as efficient means to achieve environmental policy objectives.
