EC policy framework wins
AMEC’s UK environmental policy team is delighted to announce the recent award of two framework contracts to provide services in the field of policy development and assessment to the European Commission; one in relation to climate change and the other in relation to industrial emissions, industrial accidents and mercury.
The climate change framework, for DG Climate Action, has a maximum budget of €10 million over 4 years. This includes the provision of support relating to the EU 2009 Climate and Energy package, 20-20-20 targets and complementary legislation: the Emissions Trading System, the Effort Sharing Decision, renewable energy, carbon capture and storage (CCS), transport, ozone depleting substances and fluorinated gases legislation. As well as climate change mitigation policies, the scope includes examination of cost effective options, strategies and policies for adaptation.
The industrial emissions framework, for DG Environment, has a maximum budget of €3 million over 4 years. The objective is to provide support for evaluating the implementation and effectiveness of a range of existing EU policies and measures including the Industrial Emissions Directive, Seveso Directive, E-PRTR regulation, and the EU Strategy concerning mercury. There is also scope for the development and assessment of new and/or revised EU and international policies and measures related to these areas.
Each framework is operates as a “mini-competition” with only three consortia contracted under each framework. For both, AMEC is the main contractor supported by a team of leading specialist organisations from across Europe. These awards allow AMEC to build on the success of our partnerships under the previous, equivalent frameworks, as well as other recent framework wins for the policy team, on REACH and other chemicals policy for the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) and for the Dutch Government, and industrial competitiveness for DG Enterprise of the European Commission.
