Considering the ambitious plans for Europe’s 2030 climate goals presented by the European Commission Jan. 22, we are convinced of the need for a thorough and intensive public debate to review and assess the possible impact of the proposed set of policies on the European economy, including the development of industry, competitiveness, and social impact (unemployment, poverty, social exclusion).

Central Europe Energy Partners (CEEP) and representatives of other companies and organizations representing the energy and energy-intensive sectors held a special meeting in Warsaw March 13 in order to discuss the Commission’s document entitled "A policy framework for climate and energy in the period from 2020 up to 2030," which was published Jan. 22. The parties at the meeting came to a common position and crafted a special memorandum.

The package of regulations and communications submitted by the European Commission Jan. 22 should be thoroughly discussed among member states, with the proviso that no decisions are taken by the European Council on March 20 and 21 regarding climate and energy-related goals, but by the new Parliament, Council and Commission, which should have more time to consider the complex problems, and produce a balanced approach to the EU’s economic situation and climate issues on a global scale.

CEEP is an organization representing 22 energy and energy-intensive companies from Central European countries, employing over 300,000 workers with a total revenue of more than 42 billion euros.
