 Subject: The state of the European carbon market in 2012
 Answer 

What steps is the Commission taking to ensure that the structural measures to be proposed in relation to the European Union Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) will:

– correct the shortcomings of the EU ETS and enable it to work as originally envisaged in order to reduce industrial emissions in a cost-effective manner and promote incentives for investment in low-carbon technology;

– strengthen the EU ETS, its stability and predictability and be consistent with the EU’s 2050 CO2 reduction objective; and

– promote links between the EU ETS and other trading schemes with the aim of achieving a global carbon market?
