Brussels 29 September 2015 – Published today, the latest CEMBUREAU Quarterly Economic Report highlights that although real GDP has continued to grow in Q2 2015, the momentum has slowed compared to the previous quarter (+0.4% vs +0.5%). In this respect, business and consumer confidence indicators have fallen slightly in Q2 but have remained steadily above 2014 levels since January 2015.
On 8 September 2015, CEMBUREAU responded to a European Commission consultation on the proposal for a Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council amending Directive 2003/87/EC to enhance cost-effective emissions reductions and low carbon investments
Latest quarterly figures (Q1 2015) reveal some economic momentum across Member States as GDP growth gained speed in many EU Member States (MS). However, divergences in economic performances persisted and recovery from the cumulated GDP losses is still lagging behind in some of the MS that were most affected by the subdued economic cycle across the EU since Q4 2008.
