The cost of energy and energy sources such as natural gas – crucial both for heating and in terms of raw materials – are very important components of production costs. Greenhouse gas emission policies and other initiatives of the EU over in 2030 and 2050 are also critical to the business. UE competitiveness among other countries is a foundation for the development of EU industry. This is the reason why Impexmetal decided to join CEEP.
