Glass Alliance Europe Joins EU Companies in Requesting Government Action on Energy Costs

Several companies and organizations in the European Union market, including Glass Alliance Europe, wrote a letter to President Ursula von der Leyen of the European Commission regarding concerns over the effects of rising fuel prices and the resulting energy crisis.

“The last weeks saw a great number of industrial plants shutting their doors or reducing their production in Europe and more are expected in the forthcoming weeks. These massive plants curtailments will increase Europe’s dependency on third markets for strategic supply chains and will drastically increase the global carbon emissions,” says the statement.

The statement called on the EU “to urgently introduce EU-wide measures aimed at limiting the price of natural gas and also measures designed to disconnect electricity prices from gas prices. The temporary crisis state aid framework also needs to be adjusted to this new reality.”
