European Commission announces its new climate plans with a proposal to increase its climate ambition to a 55% reduction in emissions by 2030.

The Confederation of Swedish Enterprise remains dedicated to participating constructively, and stands ready to engage in any discussions on how to best shape the EU’s climate policy for the coming years.

We are committed to ensuring that the EU eliminates all net emissions of greenhouse gases by 2050 and we are open to discussing a more ambitious 2030 target.

Tackling global warming requires global action, something that must be reflected in the EU’s climate policy. However, it is important that while reducing our own emissions, we ensure that we increase the competitiveness of our own European businesses. Decreasing emissions must be combined with growth if we are to become a true role model that the rest of the world will seek to follow.

When decreasing our emissions, it is essential to ensure that all sectors and all Member States carry their fair share of the burden. Given the limited timeframe to 2030, it will be hard for the EU Emissions Trading System to adapt to any major changes, since investments require a longer time frame.

The Confederation of Swedish Enterprise welcomes the latest discussions on a more ambitious 2030 target. The goal must be to pave the way for an EU that is both climate neutral and competitive by 2050.
