ERCST’s survey on the EU CBAM proposal

ERCST’s survey on the EU CBAM proposal

AUTHOR(S): Alexandra Maratou, Andrei Marcu

As part of its “Fit for 55” climate and energy package, the European Commission (EC) issued a proposal for a regulation establishing a Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM) on 14 July 2021. The mechanism seeks to address the risk of carbon leakage by imposing a carbon price on imports of certain carbon intensive goods from outside the EU.

The proposal puts forward certain choices with respect to the mechanism’s design elements.

ERCST launched an online survey between 1-20 September 2021 to collect stakeholder reactions to the proposed EU CBAM provisions, and to BCAs more widely.
