Commission Decision on the registration of the proposed citizens' initiative: COMMISSION DECISION

Subject-matter: Scientists and economists agree: Putting an increasing price on pollution and giving the returns to households - works.
Main objectives: A steadily increasing price on fossil fuels will reduce pollution. It leads companies and consumers to choose cleaner, cheaper options. All the money collected is returned fairly every month to citizens as a dividend. Most low and middle income families will be better off. A border adjustment protects our economy and drives global adoption. Other benefits include: cleaner air; more jobs and reduced government spending due to policy alignment.
Provisions of the Treaties considered relevant by the organisers: Articles 191 – 193 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU)
