Energy UK comments on EU carbon price

Commenting on the EU carbon price, Energy UK's chief executive Lawrence Slade, said: 

“Today’s rise in the EU carbon price to a 7 year high of €15.01 per tonne shows that recent reforms - which the UK played a part in - are starting to have an effect in restoring confidence in the world’s largest emission trading scheme. This underlines the importance of the UK remaining in, or closely linked to, the EU ETS post-Brexit in order to meet our carbon budgets and future climate commitments under the UN Paris Agreement.”
