Joint statement calls for strong EU 2050 climate strategies

25 October 2017

ROCKWOOL Group together with other businesses, civil society, investors, public authorities and trade unions call on the EU to make long-term climate strategies compulsory in the Energy Union governance regulation, and to provide guidance to help Member States make their strategies as effective as possible.

The Paris Agreement requires all signatories to come up with mid-century decarbonisation plans. In the EU, this will be transposed into the Energy Union governance regulation. However, ROCKWOOL and the fellow signatories believe the proposed regulation is too weak. The joint statement calls on the EU to ensure strong climate strategies are made legally binding in the new Energy Union governance regulation, and that the regulation contains guidance for Member States to make strong 2050 strategies.
