Briefing Increasing environmental ambition in the EU Emissions Trading Scheme: a review of amendments in the ENVI committee

In this briefing CAN Europe reviews and compares the amendments tabled in the European Parliament's ENVI Committee which concern environmental ambition in the EU ETS. 

We attempt to review all of the amendments which seek to improve environmental ambition compared with the European Commission’s legislative proposal. We highlight the best of these with a view to encouraging Committee Members to vote in support of them. We also indicate where alternative compromise amendments might be welcome on certain issues.
