European Industry Leaders Call on Lawmakers to Reject Amendments Jeopardizing Carbon Neutrality Goals

PU Europe, together with other 12 leading European associations and global partners, co-signed a letter expressing concern about certain proposed amendments to the F-gas regulation, which could undermine Europe’s carbon neutrality goals. The signatories represent industries that are committed to decarbonizing buildings through innovative heating, cooling, refrigeration, and foam insulation solutions.

While there is a strong support for a revision to increase ambition and phase down higher global warming potential HFCs, certain amendments (10, 11, 13, 14 and 21) to the F-gas regulation are particularly problematic and could slow down building renovation rates and uptake of certain technologies, among other negative consequences.

In the letter, the alliance is asking lawmakers to reject the amendments and support a pragmatic and ambitious plan for carbon neutrality by 2050 while highlighting the need to support REPowerEU, EU energy independence, and the EU Industrial Green Deal.
