Thomson Reuters Auditorium, Dronning Eufemias gate 16, 0191 Oslo


The International Emissions Trading Association (IETA) and Thomson Reuters will give an overview of international carbon markets to date (including the Kyoto Protocol, EU ETS) and how markets will be included in the Paris UNFCCC 2015 Climate Agreement.

Carbon Market Seminar: The Market Stability Reserve (MSR) – exploring the current state of play and the future market impact


 Date: Wed, 4 February, 2015

Time: 09.30 - 16.30
Networking drinks: 16:30 - 18:00
Location: The Dominican Hotel, Rue Léopold / Leopoldstraat 9, 1000 Brussels, Belgium


“Crunch time” for the Market Stability Reserve

  1. The next ICIS carbon seminar taking place on the 4th February 2015 in Brussels will focus on four key issues:
  2. What is the current state of play, potential policy scenarios, and timeline for the MSR legislative process?
  3. How could different MSR proposals as well as single amendments to the Commission’s proposal affect carbon prices in the short, medium and long-term?
  4. How could a reformed EU ETS affect market participants´ trading behaviour?
  5. What were the price developments since the last seminar, did they materialize as we expected, and where do we see prices in the short/medium run?


A multi-angle stakeholder discussion

To shed some light on the above questions, the seminar is inviting key MSR stakeholders across the EU political, regulatory, and market spectrum to present and participate in panel discussions under three thematic blocks:

  1. Block 1: The analyst view – setting the stage for discussion
  2. Block 2: The policy view – current legislative state of play and market impact of the MSR
  3. Block 3: The member states and market view – stakeholder dialogue on the MSR


IETA is a supporting organisation for this event. Please find the detailed agenda and instructions for the registration here.
