IETA welcomes the timeliness of the publication of the Commission’s Communication on putting in place a policy framework for climate and energy for the 2020-2030 period. This document starts the process to provide clarity on the trajectory post-2020 for the EU’s climate and energy policies. Such clarity is important to businesses that need a stable and predictable framework in which to operate.
IETA will work on reviewing the impact of this Communication for carbon markets, over the coming weeks. This paper represents a preliminary reaction from market participants to the 22 January publications.
