European policymakers have stated that maritime is now sailing a course into the EU ETS. Join us to hear a panel of industry and policy experts discuss what this might mean in practice. Whilst many member states are supportive, key questions remain unanswered. Should the EU ETS cover just intra-EU maritime, or include all large ships entering or leaving EU ports? What might this mean for ongoing discussions at the International Maritime Organisation? How will key trading partners respond?
