IEA director: ETS reform should have started yesterday, not in 2017

The EU and its member countries must learn the lessons of the 2020 Climate and Energy package, and realise the only way to meet the 2030 targets is through better policy coordination, and a governance and monitoring framework. Reform of the EU Emissions Trading System is vital for hitting both 2020 and 2030 targets and is long overdue, International Energy Agency executive director Maria van der Hoeven told EURACTIV.
