Orgalime participates in the Commission's stakeholder consultation on climate change

Published: 29 October 2004

Policies & Issues: Energy & Climate

Orgalime supports a comprehensive international approach for addressing climate change embedding all countries and regions worldwide and believes that isolated European action will not serve the ultimate environmental objective of preventing dangerous anthropogenic interference with the global climate. It however adds to the burden on European engineering industries and damages their competitiveness and performance in a global economy. 

In our opinion, the economic potential of using Joint Implementation and Clean Development Mechanisms is real and substantial.  The flexible mechanisms can in our opinion deliver a win-win situation for the economies involved and the environment, but further improvements and adjustments will become necessary (e.g. reduction of transfer costs or extension of the range of possible CDM projects).

We also encourage public authorities, either national or European, to further improve and engage in R&D efforts (e.g.: 7th EU Framework Programme for Research).
