At the event, run by the Aldersgate Group, Eliot said EU ETS reform is “a priority and should be the main tool for delivering emissions reductions. It currently isn’t working.” He also reinforced the importance of innovation and the necessity of a “strong industrial policy that isn’t just about R&D but the whole innovation chain”. In light of how the rest of the world is taking action, Europe cannot afford to delay.
