Ekonews: Industry will continue to receive part of its emission allowances for free. New allowances for transport and buildings will fall on the people

The European Union's system for trading the emission allowances that polluters receive or buy to produce greenhouse gases will change. NGOs believe the shift will again benefit industry. Our senior researcher Katerina Davidova commented on the issue for Ekonews.

"In general, it is a success that it has been achieved. At the beginning of the Czech Presidency we were sceptical because the positions of the European Parliament and the EU Council were quite different. But I think that the industry will be protected for quite a long time. This money could have been invested in green measures."
