Energy & Climate: Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism – Changes in the operating environment need to be addressed

Published: 19 April 2022

Policies & Issues: Energy & Climate, Trade

Orgalim supports the European Union's climate ambition and the goal of carbon neutrality by 2050. To ensure the success of Europe’s technology industries, we are advocating for a level playing field. Therefore, we agree with the rationale behind the carbon border adjustment mechanism (CBAM). The main objective of the mechanism should be to fight climate change by avoiding carbon leakage, while at the same time taking into account the competitiveness of carbon-lean industries.
