German government hindering CO2-cutting investments – interview

Tagesspiegel Background

The German government should put in place “clear incentives” to reduce CO2 emissions, said Utz Tillmann, director of German chemical industry association VCI, in an interview with Tagesspiegel Background. 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.
