Supporting GHG emissions targets with major exceptions. Supporting EU GHG emissions target although advocating that level of ambition should be contingent on international action. (BusinessEurope submission to EU consultation on 2030 framework for energy and climate policies, June 2013, p 4)
The EU should set a single 2030 emissions reduction target to incentivise investments in low-carbon and energy-efficient technologies. Due to their overlapping scope with the EU ETS, the EU targets for energy efficiency and renewable energy sources should not be continued after 2020. BUSINESSEUROPE strongly supports global efforts to reduce emissions and urges governments and the European Commission to achieve an ambitious international climate agreement in 2015. Whatever the outcome of the international climate negotiations in 2015, the EU should set a binding 2030 emissions reduction target. However, to avoid the negative consequences of unilateral decisions, the EU should take into account the outcome of the negotiations on this agreement when deciding on the most appropriate level of ambition.
