Post-2020 reform of the EU Emissions Trading System

28-05-2018

In July 2015, the European Commission proposed a reform of the EU Emissions Trading System (ETS) for the 2021-2030 period, following the guidance set by the October 2014 European Council meeting. The proposed directive introduces a new limit on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the ETS sector to achieve the EU climate targets for 2030, new rules for addressing carbon leakage, and provisions for funding innovation and modernisation in the energy sector. It encourages Member States to compensate for ...

In July 2015, the European Commission proposed a reform of the EU Emissions Trading System (ETS) for the 2021-2030 period, following the guidance set by the October 2014 European Council meeting. The proposed directive introduces a new limit on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the ETS sector to achieve the EU climate targets for 2030, new rules for addressing carbon leakage, and provisions for funding innovation and modernisation in the energy sector. It encourages Member States to compensate for indirect carbon costs. In combination with the Market Stability Reserve agreed in May 2015, the proposed reform sets out the EU ETS rules for the period until 2030, giving greater certainty to both industry and investors. In the European Parliament, the ENVI Committee took the lead on the proposal, while it shared competence with the ITRE Committee on some aspects. The European Parliament and the Council adopted their respective positions in February 2017, and interinstitutional trilogue negotiations were concluded in November 2017. After its adoption by Council and Parliament, the Directive entered into force on 8 April 2018.

EU emissions trading system: Post-2020 reform

In July 2015, the European Commission proposed a reform of the EU emissions trading system (ETS) for the 2021-2030 period. The proposed directive introduces tighter limits on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to achieve the EU's 2030 climate targets, while protecting energy-intensive industries from the risk of 'carbon leakage'. The Parliament is expected to vote on it in plenary in February.

Human Rights and Climate Change : EU Policy Options

27-08-2012

Our study provides a survey of the state of the relationships currently established between human rights and climate change. It examines the external diplomacy of the European Union in the fields of human rights and climate change. The relationship between these two fields is addressed from two different perspectives: the integration of the climate change topic within EU human rights diplomacy; and the inclusion of human rights concerns within EU climate change diplomacy.

Our study provides a survey of the state of the relationships currently established between human rights and climate change. It examines the external diplomacy of the European Union in the fields of human rights and climate change. The relationship between these two fields is addressed from two different perspectives: the integration of the climate change topic within EU human rights diplomacy; and the inclusion of human rights concerns within EU climate change diplomacy. We analyse its effectiveness, efficiency and the interrelationships with the EU’s external development policy by showing, where appropriate, their coordination, coherence and mutual support. In this respect, special emphasis is put on migration issues. Our study then turns the analysis towards internal EU climate change policies, which are explored from the perspective of human rights. We assess the compatibility of European Union mitigation policies with human rights and the gradual integration of the EU adaptation framework within other key European Union policies. Finally, this work concludes with a clarification of how the environmental human right to public information and participation in decision-making, which is transversal by nature, appears and may evolve in both EU internal and external climate policy.

Prospects for the EU Emissions Trading System

25-06-2012

The current price of carbon emissions in the EU is too low to encourage investment in low-carbon infrastructure. Several proposals have been made to bring the carbon price back to levels which incentivise ‘clean’ investments.

Phasing in changes to EU emissions trading

14-12-2011

Economic theory suggests that the most cost-efficient way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions is to price them. This is the theory behind the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS).

Which concrete actions are to be taken over the next 3 years if the EU wants to move to a competitive low carbon economy by 2050? This was the question that experts, representatives of business and environmental organisations and Members of the European Parliament and the European Commission addressed during the workshop that was held on 19 October in the European Parliament in Brussels. This document summarises the workshop presentations and the discussions that took place during the two sessions. The first session consisted in presenting the Roadmap and the 2050 targets by the European Commission, the EP Rapporteurs and a scientific contribution. The second one intended to hear proposals by seven representatives of businesses and environment organisations on concrete actions to be taken in the next three years. The event not only showed that the Roadmap provides a cost efficient pathway to a cleaner, climate friendly and competitive European economy in the long term but also that, with early actions and predictability, the Roadmap will help to put key economic sectors in the right direction from the beginning.

Workshop Report on 'The Functioning of the ETS and the Flexible Mechanisms' - Brussels, 22 March 2011

14-04-2011

In 2003, the EU established a ‘cap & trade’ emissions trading system (EU ETS) for greenhouse gas emissions of large industrial sources such as power plants and steel works. Covered installations need a tradable allowance for each tonne of their emissions. To ensure a reduction the cap is constantly reduced. The workshop discussed the basic functioning of the EU ETS and how emission reduction projects outside the EU, so called Flexible Mechanisms, can be used for compliance.

In 2003, the EU established a ‘cap & trade’ emissions trading system (EU ETS) for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of large industrial sources such as power plants, refineries and steel works. Since 2005, covered installations need a tradable allowance for each tonne of GHG emission. To ensure a reduction of -71% in 2050 compared to 2005 the cap is constantly reduced.
