Border Carbon Adjustment Mechanism – Public Consultation
September 10, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
This meeting is under Chatham House Rules | No press is invited
As part of the European Green Deal, implementation of a BCA is once again being considered as a measure to address competitiveness concerns within the EU. According to the roadmap for the European Green Deal, a proposal for a BCA for “selected sectors” will be released in 2021. So far, we can only speculate what such a BCA might look like, as few policy details have been released. Given the resurgence of discussions about BCAs on the EU political agenda, ERCST is examining the various available policy design elements and options, along with the associated environmental, economic, political and legal implications, in order to better understand what form of BCA might work for the EU.
This session will build on earlier stakeholder meetings and discussions on i.a. the Inception Impact Assessment, focusing on the initial reactions to the European Commission’s Public Consultations which are taking place until October 28th.
