Industrial Policy: Orgalim position and recommendation to the Net-Zero Industry Act

Published: 25 May 2023

Policies & Issues: Industrial Policy

Europe’s technology industries provide the high-tech solutions that will enable a more sustainable, circular and decarbonised economy in Europe. We welcome the EU’s ambition for the Net-Zero Industry Act to scale up domestic manufacturing of clean technology to boost the net-zero transition. However, it is vital to recognise that the current and future technologies needed to reach net-zero go beyond those needed for clean energy and that, to ensure their competitiveness, other measures besides faster permitting will be required.
