Open letter to the Commission on the ICMS

Today, CCS Europe and 12 other organisations co-signed an open letter calling for concrete demand and supply side initiatives to promote a market for low-carbon products in the Industrial Carbon Management Strategy. 

The co-signatories are urging the Commission to address the following:

  • Announce and publish a low-carbon products strategy
  • Announce and establish science-based methodologies for low-carbon products to accurately account for their embodied carbon based on their whole life-cycle.
  • Revise the EU procurement rules to include mandatory sustainability criteria.
  • Support the establishment of private buyers’ alliances of European companies to quickly scale demand for green basic materials. 
  • Assess and establish incentives for upstream producers of low-carbon products and downstream users of low-carbon end-products.
