The EU ETS: What the world’s largest emissions trading system is all about


The EU ETS: What the world’s largest emissions trading system is all about 

When: Tuesday 15 July, 16.30 - 18.00

Where: Room N3.3 Louise Weiss Building (LOW) - European Parliament, Strasbourg

The briefing, jointly organised by IETA and Eurelectric, has been an opportunity for newly-elected MEPs to understand what the world’s largest emissions trading system is all about, and why it was chosen as the preferred policy instrument for the EU to meet its climate objectives. Businesses from various sectors provided their views on why the EU ETS needs to remain the EU’s central policy instrument in the future European climate and energy package towards 2030, what challenges will need to be addressed by the new Parliament, and what developments we are seeing globally. Businesses shared their experience about why such a market-based-approach to reducing emissions is the most cost-efficient way to achieve an environmental outcome.

Please find the agenda here and a summary of the discussions here .

Representatives from various business sectors contributed, you can find selected presentations hereunder:

2-4 July 2014, Windhoek, Republic of Namibia

The 6th Africa Carbon Forum (ACF) in taking place from the 2nd to 4th of July 2014 in Windhoek, Republic of Namibia at the Safari Hotel Conference Center. This 2014 edition is jointly organized by IETA, the World Bank, the UNFCCC, the AfDB, UNEP Risoe Center, UNCTAD and the Ministry of Environment & Tourism of the Republic of Namibia. A comprehensive schedule is sure to entice policy makers, project developers and investors alike. The 2013 Africa Carbon Forum builds on the success of last year’s forum in Abidjan, Côte D’Ivoire, which brought together 707 participants from five continents to exchange views, share knowledge and learn more about the carbon markets.

Agreements reached at the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) conference in Doha have provided clear signals that carbon markets and climate finance will continue to be part of the global response to climate change. Therefore, the Africa Carbon Forum has been pivotal in connecting African project developers with foreign investors and carbon market representatives, truly engaging Africa in the global emissions trading process.

Post Warsaw Brief

COP 19/CMP 9 offers a valuable opportunity for negotiators to start laying the foundation for a future climate agreement that is centered on market mechanisms. The steps taken in Warsaw will chart the course for a final agreement at COP 21 in Paris in 2015. Join us in advancing IETA's Policy Priorities & Events for the Warsaw Negotiations alt.

The Framework for Various Approaches (FVA), alongside a New Market Mechanism (NMM), offers the opportunity to deliver a global market for emissions reductions. This can sit at the heart of the new agreement negotiated under the Durban Platform (ADP). For more details see IETA's brief on FVA & NMM .
