"climate change will be high on the EU's framtidsagenda."
"the Parties are in dispute about how much and what needs to be done."
"the EU wants to be a leader in the global efforts for the climate. In addition, the union must itself do more to contribute to keeping global warming is clearly below two degrees."
"It allows the pressure in the EU more climate action remains high."
"– Europe has a key role in being a catalyst in other regions of the world and show that there are technologies and opportunities", says Göran Finnveden, professor of strategic environmental analysis at the Royal Institute of technology (KTH)."
"A cornerstone of the EU's climate policy is the emissions trading scheme. The system, ETS, covering around 11,000 industrial and power plants in the EU. Also, aviation is included in part."
"Several parties want the price of allowances increases. It would increase the industry's incentives to reduce its emissions faster. A way to get the price up is that the EU reduces the number of allowances that can be traded in the ETS at a faster pace than in the day."
"– Ets can be a very effective way to reduce emissions, " says Torsten."
"He points out, however, that it comes to have sufficiently ambitious targets are not located too far forward in time. It also applies to make sure to cancel allowances if it gets too many on the market."
"the financial Crisis of 2008-2009 has made that there have been many allowances for sale, which meant that the price of carbon has been low."
"the EU has recently revised the ETS to make the system more effective. New revisions may be necessary."
"But there is concern in the EU, too expensive allowances get the company to move its operations outside the union."
"Several parties believe it is better to take in more sectors in the ETS. For example, shipping and also flights from the EU to other destinations outside the union."
"the ETS covers nearly half of the EU's total emissions. The EU has set a target to reduce total emissions by 40% by 2030, compared with 1990 levels."
"For emissions not covered by the ETS, each member state had binding national targets. It is up to the member states to take measures to achieve them."
"As it looks now, the EU to meet the target of 40% by 2030. But it is not considered to be sufficient for the more long-term global goal in the paris agreement to keep global warming is clearly below two degrees."
"the EUROPEAN parliament has adopted a resolution to raise the target for 2030, to 55 per cent. Almost all parties want to raise the goal and some want to go longer than 55 per cent."
"IN the EUROPEAN elections are discussions about an EU tax on carbon dioxide or that the EU is facing a minimum level of national carbon dioxide taxes. But almost all the parties are opposed to allowing the EU to deal with taxes."
"Even if carbon taxes are an effective instrument, so judge At that they will be extremely difficult to push through in the EU."
"– it is possible that It is throwing away energy on trying, " he says."
"Finnveden think more on trying to make the air fares that currently exist in some EU countries more effective."
"He also thinks it is important that the EU keeps up the pressure on technology development and ensures that green technologies are put to practical use."
"It can, for example, of the EU rules on state aid and procurement and shall not prevent the wagers on the klimatinvesteringar."
"It could also be that EU aid should not go to investments such as highways or to fossil fuels."
"– It is easy to point at the investments and discussions about the investments that lead us in the wrong direction, " says Torsten."
