One reason to support the ECI New Deal 4 Europe: Reduce CO2 emissions at European level. Lower the planet’s fever.

[…] In spite of the energy transition, CO2 emissions in Germany are rising. This is a result of a surplus of emission certificates within the Emissions Trading System (ETS), which is mainly caused by the falling production after the economic crisis in 2009. Thus the CO2 price has declined, and electricity generation from black and brown coal has been rising, while climate-friendly gas power plants throughout Germany have generated less and less electricity or have even been completely decommissioned. CO2 emissions in Germany will only be lowered by a European approach, through a modification of the ETS.[…]

Our initiative demands a European approach to CO2 emissions asking that the European own resources should be financed by a carbon tax at European level.

Question concerning the investment plan proposed by Jean Claude Juncker.
[EP] How in the coming 3 months will you deliver the investment package announced in the Political guidelines  presented by the elected president of the Commission? What concrete steps are you going to take? Which  instruments will you use and/or create in that perspective? How will you involve the European Parliament?
[JK] […] At EU level, we need to make sure that the available funds are used more effectively in supporting investment – this can include the use of innovative financial instruments. The Commission is completing the programming and I would work with colleagues and Member States to encourage concentration on job-creating growth. […]
