Climate Contribution and its role in European industrial decarbonisation

Last year, the Climate Friendly Materials Platform proposed an innovative policy framework to support the decarbonisation of the basic materials sector in the EU. A new policy brief from the platform focuses on one major component of this package: introducing the climate contribution to compliment the free allocation in the EU Emissions Trading System. The brief clarifies the concept and explains why it is a viable option to meet the policy objectives of Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism in a way that has major advantages compared to alternative instruments focusing on border measures.
