German government hindering CO2-cutting investments – interview

The fledgling government has delayed policy changes that have prevented investments that would cut carbon pollution, Tillmann added. The chemical industry is both the third most important economic sector in Germany and one of the country’s largest consumers of energy, according to Tagesspiegel Background.
