Commission releases green paper; asks for consultation

On March 28th the European commission released a green paper, “A 2030 framework for climate and energy policies”. 

The release of this green paper is one of the first documents specifically focused on the process towards post-2020 EU legislation.  The mid-term goals and legislation, from 2020-2030, must still be determined by the commission.  By their own admission, “Developing a 2030 framework for EU climate change and energy policies is necessary to provide certainty and reduced regulatory risk for investors”.

The green paper includes a number of questions which make up the public consultation portion.  Respondents have until July 2nd 2013 to respond to the proposed questions.

RECS International will be a respondent and answer the questions in collaboration with stakeholders.
