Open Letter to Heads of State regarding the 2030 Framework

21 October 2014

Today the six constituent organisations of GasNaturally put their names to a letter addressed to the heads of the EU Member States. In it, the position of GasNaturally is outlined ahead of the upcoming European Council meeting, on the 23rd and 24th of October. 

In the letter, GasNaturally makes four clear points:

  • The EU should opt for a single legally-binding 2030 greenhouse gas emissions reduction target, with a central role for the Emissions Trading System
  • The EU should promote a gas and renewables partnership
  • The EU should support efforts to explore and produce more gas in the EU with appropriate environmental regulatory and fiscal policies
  • The EU should¬†support R&D to bring promising low-carbon technologies to the market
