With regard to light commercial vehicles, the same approach as that for car manufacturers should apply to manufacturers of lighter, car derived, vans, while for manufacturers of vehicles falling within the heavier segments, a higher and fixed slope should be set for the whole target period.

(10) There is widespread support from key stake amended Directive shoulders for a definition of clean vehicles taking account of reduction requireme contribute to a reduction of emissions of air pollutants forand greenhouse gases and air pollutant emissions from light- and heavy- duty vehicles. To ensure that there are adequate incentives to supporting market- uptake of low- and zero- emission vehicles in the Union, provisions for their public procurement under this amendment should be aligned with provisions of Union legislation on CO2 emission performance of cars and vans for the post-2020 period26 . Action carried out under t. Furthermore, the amended Directive shares the aim of, inter alia, promotion of clean road transport with Directive 2014/94/EU. Consequently, the definition of a clean vehicle should be aligned with provisions of Directive 2014/94/EU. That alignment will create long term predictability and stability in Union law and protect investments already made into alternative fuels infrastructure. The amended Directive will also contribute to compliancethe further deployment of alternative fuels infrastructure, as well as to compliance of vehicles with the requirements of these latest standards on emissions of air pollutants and greenhouse gases. A more ambitious approach for public procurement can provide an important additional market stimulus. _________________ 26 COM(2017) 676 final

Proposal for a regulation
Recital 4
(4) It is appropriate to replace Directive 2010/30/EU by a Regulation which maintains the same scope, but modifies and enhances some of its provisions in order to clarify and update their content. A Regulation is the appropriate legal instrument as it imposes clear and detailed rules which do not give room for divergent transposition by Member States and ensures thus a higher degree of harmonisation across the Union. A harmonised regulatory framework at Union rather than at Member State level brings down costs for manufacturers and ensures a level playing field. Harmonisation across the Union ensures the free movement of goods across the Single Market. As the energy consumption of means of transport for persons or goods is directly or indirectly regulated by other Union legislation and policies, it is appropriate to continue to exempt them from the scope of this Regulation. This exemption includes means of transport whose motor stays in the same location during operation, such as elevators, escalators and conveyor belts.

Recital 2 a (new)
(2a) In line with the Agreement adopted in Paris at the 21st Conference of the Parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change of 12 December 2015 (the 'Paris Agreement'), all sectors of the economy should contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions. To this end, efforts to limit international maritime emissions through the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) are under way and should be encouraged, with the aim of establishing a clear IMO action plan for climate policy measures to tackle CO2 emissions from shipping at a global level. Therefore, the Commission and Member States should focus on ensuring the implementation of Regulation (EU)2015/757 of the European Parliament and of the Council1a and its alignment with an international data-collection system, which is a prerequisite for any market- based measure, efficiency standard or other measure, whether applied at Union level or globally. __________________ 1a Regulation (EU) 2015/757 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 29 April 2015 on the monitoring, reporting and verification of carbon dioxide emissions from maritime transport, and amending Directive 2009/16/EC (OJ L 123, 19.5.2015, p. 55).

(5) Article 191(2) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union requires that Union policy is based on the principle that the polluter should pay and, on this basis, Directive 2003/87/EC provides for a transition to full auctioning over time. Avoiding carbon and investment leakage is a justification to postpone fullsuch a transition, and targeted free allocation of allowances to industry is justified in order to address genuine risks of increases in global greenhouse gas emissions inand diversion of investments to third countries where industry is not subject to comparable carbon constraints as long as comparable climate policy measures are not undertaken by other major economies. Additional achievements in sectors not falling under the scope of the EU ETS and not subject to a risk of carbon leakage, in particular in the building sector and sustainable transport, will decrease the amount of effort needed from the Union’s industry.

Proposal for a directive
Recital 10
(10) The main long-term incentive from this Directive for thecarbon capture and storage of CO2(CCS) and carbon capture and use (CCSU), new renewable energy technologies and breakthrough innovation in low-carbon technologies and processes is the carbon price signal it creates and that allowances will not need to be surrendered for CO2 emissions which are permanently stored or avoided. In addition, to supplement the resources already being used to accelerate demonstration of commercial CCS and CCU facilities and innovative renewable energy technologies, EU ETS allowances should be used to provide guaranteed rewards for deployment of CCS and CCU facilities, new renewable energy technologies and industrial innovation in low-carbon technologies and processes in the Union for CO2 stored or avoided on a sufficient scale, provided an agreement on knowledge sharing is in place. The majority of this support should be dependent on verified avoidance of greenhouse gas emissions, while some support may be given when pre-determined milestones are reached taking into account the technology deployed. The maximum percentage of project costs to be supported may vary by category of project.

Recital 12
(12) The European Council confirmed that the modalities, including transparency, of the optional free allocation to modernise the energy sector in certain Member States should be improved. Investments with a value of €1EUR 20 million or more should be selected by the Member State concerned through a competitive bidding process on the basis of clear and transparent rules to ensure that free allocation is used to promote real investments modernising the energy sector in line with the Energy Union objectives. The cogeneration of heat and power (CHP) should also be eligible for the optional free allocation to modernise the energy sector or in the case of electricity consumed by industry which is produced by high-efficiency industrial CHP plants. Use of high-efficiency CHP allows industry to achieve industrial self- support in terms of energy with CHP- produced electricity. Investments with a value of less than €1EUR 20 million should also be eligible for funding from the free allocation. The Member State concerned should select such investments based on clear and transparent criteria. The results of this selection process should be subject to public consultation and the results should be made available to the public. The public should be duly kept informed at the stage of the selection of investment projects as well as of their implementation.

The cancellation of allowances in accordance with paragraph 19 shall be dispensed if the operator applies to take over the production from one or several of his production sites (production transfer into the same company), and he proves in each case up to the 31st of January of one year that the actual increase of the activity rate of that site that has taken over a part of the transferred production amounts to a total of at least 50 % of the annual- average production amount of the whole transferred production of the ceased site in the year 2020. The proof after sentence 1 is to be given for the first time in the following year after the application of the transfer. If the proof necessary after sentence 1 is not given in time, the allocation for the transferred production whose production activity was ceased will be recanted in that amount for the future.'

(12) Many small and medium enterprises, as well as mid-cap companies, across the Union require assistance to attract market financing, especially as regards investments that carry a greater degree of risk. This is particularly true of businesses in rural areas, where economic growth and measures to safeguard jobs are urgently needed. The EFSI should help these businesses to overcome capital shortages by allowing the EIB and the European Investment Fund ('EIF') to provide direct and indirect equity injections, as well as to provide guarantees for high-quality securitisation of loans, and other products that are granted in pursuit of the aims of the EFSI.

In particular, the EFSI should target projects that promote job creation, long- term growth, sustainable growth, new technologies and innovations in health care and competitiveness. The EFSI should support a wide range of financial products, including equity, debt or guarantees, to best accommodate the needs of the individual project. This wide range of products should allow the EFSI to adapt to market needs whilst encouraging private investment in the projects. The EFSI should not be a substitute for private market finance but should instead catalyse private finance by addressing market failures so as to ensure the most effective and strategic use of public money. The requirement for consistency with State aid principles should contribute to such effective and strategic use.

(29) To partially finance the contribution from the Union budget, the available envelopes of the Horizon 2020 – the Framework Programme for Research and Innovation 2014-2020, provided by Regulation (EU) No 1291/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council2, and the Connecting Europe Facility, provided by Regulation (EU) No 1316/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council3, should be reduced. Those programmes serve purposes that are not replicated by the EFSI. However, the reduction of both programmes to finance the guarantee fund is expected to ensure a greater investment in certain areas of their respective mandates than is possible through the existing programmes. The EFSI should be able to leverage the EU guarantee to multiply the financial effect within those areas of research, development and innovation and transport, telecommunications and energy infrastructure compared to if the resources had been spent via grants within the planned Horizon 2020 and Connecting Europe Facility programmes. It is, therefore, appropriate to redirect part of the funding presently envisaged for those programmes to the benefit of EFSI. __________________ 2 Regulation (EU) No 1291/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 11 December 2013 establishing Horizon 2020 - the Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (2014-2020) and repealing Decision No 1982/2006/EC (OJ L 347, 20.12.2013, p. 104). 3Regulation (EU) No 1316/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 11 December 2013 establishing the Connecting Europe Facility, amending Regulation (EU) No 913/2010 and repealing Regulations (EC) No 680/2007 and (EC) No 67/2010 (OJ L 348, 20.12.2013, p. 129).deleted

Recital 27
(27) It is recognised that the potential effect of a product on the environment may depend on the volume used and the resulting amount of the pharmaceutical substance that may reach the environment. Therefore, where there is evidence that a constituent of a medicinal product for which a generic application for a marketing authorisation is submitted is a hazard for the environment, it is appropriate to require data on the potential effect on the environment in order to safeguard the environment. In such cases applicants should endeavour to join efforts in generating such data in order to reduce costs and to reduce testing on vertebrate animals. The current impact assessment system results in repetitive and potentially divergent assessments of substances' environmental properties. This can lead to divergent decisions being taken on products with similar effects on the environment, especially in the case of products authorised before the environmental impact assessment was carried out. The establishment of a single centralised assessment of the environmental properties of active substances for veterinary use by means of a monograph system could be a potential alternative. The Commission should therefore submit a report to Parliament and the Council examining the feasibility of monographs and potential alternative options as soon as possible.

Recital 2
(2) The report from the Commission to the European Parliament and the Council on the state of the European carbon market in 21027 identified the need for measures in order to tackle structural supply-demand imbalances. The impact assessment on the 2030 climate and energy policy framework8 indicates that this imbalance is expected to continue, and would not be sufficiently addressed by adapting the linear trajectory to a more stringent target within this framework. A change in the linear factor only changes gradually the cap. Accordingly, the surplus would also only gradually decline, such that the market would have to continue to operate for more than a decade with a surplus of around 2 billion allowances or more. In order to address this problem and to make the European Emission Trading System more resilient to imbalances, a market stability reserve should be established. To ensure regulatory certainty as regards auction supply in phase 3 and allow for some lead-time adjusting to the introduction of the design change, the market stability reserve should be established as of phase 4 starting in 2021. In order to preserve a maximum degree of predictability, clear rules should be set for placing allowances into the reserve and releasing them from the reserve. Where the conditions are met, beginning in 2021, allowances corresponding to 12% of the number of allowances in circulation in year x-21 should be put into the reserve. A corresponding number of allowances should be released from the reserve when the total number of allowances in circulation is lower than 400 million. __________________ 7 8COM(2012)652 final.

(3a) In the light of the ETS reform that is envisaged by the introduction of the market stability reserve, and in particular, the reduction in the surplus of allowances, the auctioning of the allowances back-loaded to 2019 and 2020 in accordance with Commission Regulation (EU) No 176/20141a , would be counterproductive. Accordingly, the back- loaded allowances should be withheld and their purpose determined within the review of Directive 2003/87/EC. __________________ 1aCommission Regulation (EU) No 176/2014 of 25 February 2014 amending Regulation (EU) No 1031/2010 in particular to determine the volumes of greenhouse gas emission allowances to be auctioned in 2013-2020 (OJ L 56, 26.2.2014, p. 11).

(3a) Due to indirect costs relating to greenhouse gas emissions passed on in electricity prices, the Commission should consider a review of the lists of sectors and subsectors deemed to be exposed to a significant risk of carbon leakage in Annex II of the state aid guidelines 2012/C158/04 for electricity price compensation. The review should aim at ensuring consistency with eligible sectors listed under Section 3.7.2 of the state aid guidelines 2014/C200/01 for environmental protection and energy because of risks to their competitive position due to high electro-intensity. Sectors or subsectors exposed to a risk of carbon leakage, in which the sum of indirect additional costs would lead to a particularly high increase of production costs, calculated as a proportion of the gross value added, of at least 30% should also be taken into account in order to fully compensate for these costs.

(3b) In its conclusions of 21 March 2014 the European Council emphasised that Europe needs a strong and competitive industrial base as a key driver for economic growth and jobs and that industrial competitiveness concerns should be systematically mainstreamed across all EU policy areas. The European Council invited the Council and the Commission rapidly to develop measures to prevent potential carbon leakage and called for long-term planning security for industrial investment in order to ensure the competitiveness of Europe's energy- intensive industries. It also stressed that a coherent European energy and climate policy must address the issue of high energy costs – in particular for energy- intensive industries – and ensure affordable energy prices.

Recital 4
(4) Where pasture or agricultural land previously destined for food and feed markets is diverted to biofuel production, the non-fuel demand will still need to be satisfied either through intensification of current production or by bringing non- agricultural land into production elsewhere. The latter case constitutes indirect land-use change and when it involves the conversion of land with high carbon stock it can lead to significant greenhouse gas emissions. Directives 98/70/EC and 2009/28/EC should therefore be amended to include provisions to address indirect land-use change given that current biofuels are mainly produced from crops grown on existing agricultural land.

However, Article 19(6) of Directive 2009/28/EC and Article 7d(6) of Directive 98/70/EC require that appropriate measures are taken to protect investments already made before the indirect land use change methodology is applied.

2012/0288(COD)

Council position
Recital 5
(5) Based on forecasts of biofuel demand provided by the Member States and estimates of indirect land-use change emissions for different biofuel feedstocks, it is likely there is a risk that greenhouse gas emissions linked to indirect land- use change are significant, and could negate some or all of the greenhouse gas emission savings of individual biofuelscould be significant. This is because almost the entire biofuel production in 2020 is expected to come from crops grown on land that could be used to satisfy food and feed markets. In order to reduce such emissions, it is appropriate to distinguish between crop groups such as oil crops, sugars and cereals and other starch-rich crops accordinglyavert this risk in the short, medium and long term, research and development should be encouraged into the production of new forms of advanced biofuels that do not compete directly with food crops.

Council position
Recital 15
(15) The Commission's impact assessment has shown that the models used to estimated the indirect land-use change emissions should be included in the reporting by the Commission of greenhouse gas emissions from biofuels under Directives 98/70/EC and 2009/28/EC. Biofuels made from feedstocks that do not lead to additional demand for land, such as those from waste feedstocks, should be assigned a zero emissions factor. of biofuels production deliver results with significant variations, limitations and uncertainties. The results of modelling emissions from indirect land-use change are therefore still too uncertain to be included in legislation. The Commission should, before 31 December 2015, submit a report to the European Parliament, incorporating experience from ILUC-models implemented in other countries and developed in close corporation with all relevant stakeholders, on progress as regards the robustness and reliability of scientific evidence for the use of indirect land use change factors; the report should, if appropriate, be accompanied by a legislative proposal introducing a requirement for fuel suppliers to regularly report on the estimated indirect land-use change emissions of the biofuels they market, based on ILUC factors and with effect from September 2016.
