AEII submission for the public consultation on the 2030 climate policy
The climate and industrial transformation agendas should be implemented simultaneously.
In the Masterplan for a Competitive Transformation of EU Energy-intensive Industries Enabling a Climateneutral, Circular Economy by 2050 the High Level Group on Energy Intensive Industries has highlighted the need for rapid progress on the demonstration of first-of-its kind technologies by 2030, considering the short time left until 2050. Energy-Intensive Industries (EIIs) support the Commission’s long-term vision for industry, but we now need to go beyond the vision and the high-level statements: industry needs an enabling regulatory framework and specific supporting measures creating the framework conditions for the transformation of our sectors. Setting up the “right enabling framework conditions for this transition” is a must, here and now: hence we call for a Clean Industry Package with concrete actions in the next 12 months, matching Europe’s climate ambition.
