The EEB welcomes the possibility to comment on the Inception Impact Assessment (IIA) on the review of the EU’s Emissions Trading System (ETS).

The EU ETS is an important driver of decarbonisation but it needs to be strengthened and cannot work alone. We believe that the regulatory overhaul of the climate and energy framework to step up Europe’s 2030 climate ambition is a unique opportunity to improve policy coherence and address the existing loopholes The ETS must be reinforced and go in hand with a stronger regulatory approach – by no means it should replace it.
