IETA LIVE Carbon Markets – What Does the Proposed 2040 Target Mean for the EU ETS?

April 9



Virtual Event


11:00am CET


12:30pm CET


Join our IETA LIVE webinar to discuss the significance of the proposed 2040 climate target for the EU’s carbon market.

Invited experts will discuss the role of the EU ETS in delivering the 90% net greenhouse gas emissions reductions by 2040 and look into the policy process and timeline. They will give their perspective on what the proposed target means for the EU ETS cap trajectory and the sectoral emissions reductions required.

What are the key takeaways from the 2040 Communication and Impact Assessment? How will the ETS framework evolve after 2030? How might carbon dioxide removals be regulated in the EU ETS?

Join us for our IETA LIVE for a deep dive into these questions from our panel of experts, followed by a Q&A session.
