The European Green Deal – ERCST work and the role of the EU ETS
January 8, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The incoming European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen announced her intention to present an ambitious ‘European Green Deal’, which is expected to be a comprehensive policy package aimed at steering the EU towards becoming the world’s first climate-neutral continent. While the exact content and impact of such a Green Deal remains unclear, it is certain to have strong implications for Europe’s economy and society.
As the new European Commission is expected to communicate the ‘European Green Deal’ on December 11th, this initial meeting is an opportunity for stakeholders to have a discussion on its content, brainstorm on its impact on the EU ETS and help structure the roundtables work on the Green Deal.
This meeting has two objectives:
- Firstly, ERCST would like to identify in which areas of the European Green Deal work done by the Roundtable could be an added-value to the policy debate in Europe. Through an interactive discussion with our stakeholders, we want to discover which aspects and angles to the Green Deal could be interesting for ERCST’s to work on in the the coming years.
- Secondly, through a brainstorm session, ERCST wants to identify stakeholders’ views on the impacts of the elements included in the European Green Deal on the EU ETS, and their views on the role of the ETS going forward in this ‘new world’.
A draft agenda will follow soon
