The EEB outlines his view on the upcoming proposal by the European Commission to revise State Aid Guidelines for the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) – a scheme allowing European companies to trade carbon allowances. 

The EEB believes that the use of public resources, both at EU and national level, must enable the transformative change in our economy necessary to achieve climate-neutrality before 2050 and be aligned with green financing principles. It must also be consistent with the commitment to greening the European Semester, aiming to ensure that macro-economic policies are environmentally sustainable.
