A position statement, entitled "Time to scrap the ETS", has been produced to collectively take a stand against the EU-ETS. It aims to help create space for the end of the ETS to be seen as a feasible political option. More than 30 organisations, including Corporate Europe Observatory, have already supported the document. The signatories call on civil society organisations and movements to endorse it and to join the fight to abolish the ETS.
Since the European Council met in June 2012, the heads of the main European institutions have put forward several proposals for a so-called “Genuine Economic and Monetary Union”, better known as fiscal union (for a detailed examination of the proposals see). The most detailed proposal was the Blueprint published by the European Commission at the end of November. They argue for a step-by-step approach to complete the fiscal Union.
