EuLA Position on ETS backloading

The European Lime Association (EuLA) disagrees as a matter of principle with a Commission intervention in the carbon market. EuLA underlines that: “Changing the agreed GHG emission reduction targets for 2020 by any kind of intervention including “setting aside” allowances, or by adjusting the auctioning timeframe (backloading), is a very delicate issue with great impact on the industrial economic tissue of each of the EU Member States.” EuLA urges the Commission and all policy makers to keep in mind the competitiveness of EU industry and to ensure, at least, legal predictability up to 2020; while starting to focus in a transparent way on the post-2020 framework.
