A Competitive EU Energy and Climate Policy - BusinessEurope recommendations for a 2030 framework for energy and climate policies
BusinessEurope recommendations for a 2030 framework for energy and climate policies. The stakes for European companies are very high in the new energy, climate and competitiveness package for the 2020-2030 period. The European Union has committed to strengthening its industrial base by increasing the share of industry in overall GDP from 15 to 20% by 2020. This industrial growth agenda requires a rethink of our energy and climate policies to transform them into true industrial growth drivers. With unemployment at record levels and increased industrial competition from emerging countries and the United States, we have to tackle the energy cost challenge head on.
