Letter on EU fit-for-55-Package

Strengthening our economic recovery and dramatically reducing carbon emissions are complementary objectives. The best and fastest way to achieve these objectives is systemic reform of EU policies so that innovation is at their core, starting with the Fit for 55 Package.
