Key Guiding Principle The EU ETS should be a more dynamic system which safeguards and rewards the growth of sectors identified at risk of carbon leakage. A lower, even more dynamic threshold (i.e. <15%) is need to better reflect industrial requirements for free allocation. Furthermore, under allocation in times of growth can be avoided with a better designed, fairer, more dynamic system. 1. Determination of the historical activity levels...
UNIDEN would like to contribute to the consultation on EU ETS allocation rules for the period 2021-2030, in particular on two main issues A) Determination of activity levels A1) Initial Activity Level A2) Adjustment due to production change (relative and absolute threshold) A3) Special case for activity level of installations allocated with fuel and heat benchmarks B) Update of benchmarks. B1) Benchmark products B2)...

Guiding principle: To avoid the risk of carbon leakage, free allocation in Phase 4 should incentivize GHG reduction friendly industrial growth at updated benchmark level and avoid overcompensation. 1. Rules to be applied to free allocation: According to article 11(1) of ETS Directive, free allocations given to individual installations must be calculated on the data from 2014 to 2018. The rules to be applied for calculating the initial...

- "Fall-back benchmarks" (heat, fuel, process emissions): they are expected to be updated according to the levels of the sectors during 2016-2017 (for example, in the case of the first sub-period), just like the product benchmarks. However, an Impact Assessment must be carried out in order to contemplates and evaluates the different alternatives and availability of raw materials and energy uses that could affect the improvement observed in the...
