EUKI Report | Industrial decarbonisation policies in the EU

This report, written by Tatiana Mindekova, is the first part of the future publication for our project “Decarbonization of the Industrial Sector: Sustainable finance as an opportunity?“, which is funded by the European Climate Initiative. It offers an overview of the key climate policies of the European Union, with special attention paid to the heavy industry sector.

The EU’s climate agenda is a balancing act between different objectives.

The climate-related agenda of the EU is not limited to the emissions reductions and includes other aims such as safeguarding economic growth and ensuring competitiveness of industries.

Energy intensive industries are still not properly addressed.

Currently, EU pays special attention to the steel, chemicals and cement sectors as these were highlighted as the ‘areas of relevance’ for its green, digital and resilient transformation in the Annual Single Market report from 2021

The recent EU’s strategies focused on the energy intensive industries are a good sign of its increased attention to these sectors, but the sectoral coverage remains still uneven.
