EuLA (2017): EU ETS position paper on Border Adjustment Mechanism (BAM)

Sep 01, 2023

Implementing a “border adjustment mechanism” (BAM) restricted to a few sectors, as foreseen by the amendments 12, 27 & 84 of the European Parliament report1, will create an asymmetric EU ETS and seriously endanger fair competition in the internal market. EuLA therefore calls on the Members of the European Parliament during the plenary to:

  • Reject amendments 12 (second part), 27, 84
  • Adopt amendment 144

The BAM proposed by ENVI discriminates against the lime industry and jeopardizes its ability to compete globally and internally.

This is why the lime industry calls for a common treatment to protect sectors exposed to carbon leakage, in order to maintain the integrity of the internal market and ensure a global level playing field.
