2019 State of the EU ETS Report – Launch
May 7, 2019 @ 1:45 am - 5:00 pm
This meeting is the launch event of the 2019 State of the EU ETS Report. During the meeting, the authors will present the Report and their findings through a presentation, after which the Report will be discussed in a roundtable setting. This will be the fourth annual report on the State of the EU ETS, and builds on the report produced by this group of authors in the last two years. The 2018 Report can be accessed here.
The European Commission is required to annually assess, according to the EU ETS Directive, the functioning of the EU ETS and report back to the EU Parliament and Council. In December 2018, the European Commission released its fourth “Report on the functioning of the European carbon market”, covering 2017.
While the European Commission has its role to play in providing an official report, it is also important that independent review and assessment of the functioning and delivery of the EU ETS takes place.
The annual “State of the EU ETS” Report aims to provide such an independent contribution to the policy debate, which is needed to ensure that the EU ETS is “fit for purpose”.
The report focuses on 5 key areas:
- Recent policy developments and implications
- Environmental delivery
- Economic delivery
- Market functioning
- Issues to monitor for the future
