Industrial decarbonisation policies in the EU
03 / 10 / 2022
This report was prepared by Tatiana Mindekova, a policy researcher at EUROPEUM Institute, in
cooperation with the project consortium partners.
Industries are key to the success of Fit for 55.
A goal of a net-zero-emissions continent by 2050 cannot be achieved without a more ambitious approach to decarbonization of industry in the EU.
The EU’s climate agenda is a balancing act between different objectives.
The climate-related agenda of the EU is not limited to the emissions reductions and includes other aims such as safeguarding economic growth and ensuring competitiveness of industries.
Energy intensive industries are still not properly addressed.
Currently, EU pays special attention to the steel, chemicals and cement sectors as these were highlighted as the ‘areas of relevance’ for its green, digital and resilient transformation in the Annual Single Market report from 2021
The recent EU’s strategies focused on the energy intensive industries are a good sign of its increased attention to these sectors, but the sectoral coverage remains still uneven.

What's So Hard About Emission Abatement? It's the Incentives
Heavy industries’ emissions are deemed hard to abate. Not only are they energy intensive but steel, cement and chemical production also bring hefty carbon emissions from the processes used. The broad consensus related to the hard-to-abate sectors is that their decarbonization requires both demand and supply forces. We need significant demand reductions as well as material efficiency, recycling efforts and deployment of new technologies at the supply side.
