Border Carbon Adjustments in the EU: Launch of Report on Crediting of Climate Policies and Comparing Level of Effort under the CBAM
October 27 @ 15:00 - 17:00
Hybrid event, both in person and online. We look forward to seeing as many people as possible in person.
The in person meeting will take place at ERCST offices (Address: Rue Archimède 61, 1000 Brussels, Belgium)
Since 2019, ERCST has built up solid experience on BCAs and carbon leakage issues in the EU context. The ERCST Team has accompanied the CBAM file from its earliest stages in the legislative process, providing analytical input to the discussion on BCAs and fostering an informed debate with domestic and international stakeholders.
One of the crunch issues identified by ERCST is the question of how to compare third countries’ climate policies to that of the EU and what this means for the reduction of CBAM obligations. Which options exist to address this in an equitable, accurate, and WTO-legal way? What is the administrative effort associated with these proposals? Are they feasible?
At this event, the ERCST Team will launch its Report on Crediting of Climate Policies and Comparing Level of Effort under the CBAM, presenting its own recommendations, and discussing its analysis with experts.
