SFIF strongly oppose.any hasty actions to in the short term drive up the price of CO2 in the EU ETS. The trading system is functioning as it was intended and any hasty changes would seriously damage the function and credibility of the EU ETS
SFIF welcomes a thorough dialog on the future of the EU ETS, from 2020 and onwards.
SFIF strongest input to this discussion at this time is that:
- The target for the EU ETS should be set for 2035 or 2040 since predictability is essential for investments.
- The industry must be compensated for the increased costs that follow the aggressive European Climate policy. This compensation must be both for direct increased cost, as well as for indirect increased cost (electricity).
- The link between electricity generators and industrial installations inside the ETS must be broken.
- ETS should prevent investment leakage not only carbon leakage.
