Target group(s)

All citizens and organisations are welcome to contribute to this consultation. Contributions are particularly sought from industry stakeholders, Trade unions, NGOs and public authorities

Period of consultation

From 08 May 2014 to 31 July 2014

Objective of the consultation

The aim of the consultation is to canvass opinions on different options for a system to avoid carbon leakage after 2020. Based on a questionnaire, the online consultation complements three stakeholder meetings to be held in the coming months. The consultation will run until 31 July 2014 but earlier replies are encouraged.
The results of the consultation will feed into further work on the 2030 climate and energy policy framework regarding the determination of post-2020 rules on free allocation and carbon leakage provisions in the EU ETS. Responses to the questionnaire will also serve to stimulate more focused discussions during the stakeholder meetings.
