General Court of the European Union dismissed an action brought by Arcelor, a steel producer, challenging the validity of the Emissions Trading Directive. Arcelor claimed that application of certain articles of the directive violated several principles of Community law, including the right of property, the freedom to pursue an economic activity, the principle of proportionality, the principle of equal treatment, freedom of establishment and the principle of legal certainty. The General Court dismissed the action for annulment as inadmissible, noting that Arcelor is neither individually nor directly concerned by the directive.
