Submission on strengthening the EU ETS

CAN Europe made a submission on the European Commission’s Consultation on options to strengthen the EU ETS.

CAN Europe is seriously concerned about the current underperformance of the ETS and  extremely weak carbon price signal, which in combination with record low coal prices, decrease the  attractiveness of green investments and in consequence puts the EU at risk of dangerous high carbon lock-in.
