Brussels 6 November 2013 – CEMBUREAU, the European Cement Association, has taken note of the recently published Carbon Leakage Evidence Project report, produced by Ecorys on behalf of the European Commission.
On 1 October 2013, CEMBUREAU responded to a European Commission consultation on sustainable buildings. Whilst the Association welcomes this initiative, it is nonetheless concerned that the approach taken may be too narrow in focus.
On 5 November 2013, the European Commission published its economic forecast for the Autumn of 2013. The Commission shows itself confident that the structural reforms undertaken in Europe have created the basis for recovery and it sees increasing signs that the European economy has reached a turning point. While real GDP growth is still estimated to be at 0.0 % in the EU in 2013, it is forecast to gather pace in 2014 with a 1.4% increase and in 2015 with an estimated 1.9% growth.
