EU Inception Impact Assessment: Climate change – updating the EU emissions trading system (ETS)

VIK welcomes the opportunity to participate in the consultation on the roadmap to update the EU Emissions Trading Scheme and supports the EU Commission’s discussion on an improved emissions trading scheme.

It must be ensured, however, that the planned reform of emissions trading does not lead to a disproportional, additional cost increase for industrial installations in Europe, and thus to a decrease in competitiveness of the European industry. This would lead to the exodus of production facilities to non-European countries, so-called carbon leakage.
