CBAM Global Townhall 2022 – Session 3: Carbon Clubs and International Cooperation on CBAM/BCAs
September 13 @ 16:00 - 18:00
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)
On the global stage, countries have been reacting to the developments surrounding the EU CBAM, and we can expect to see some follow suit. Ideally, there would be international coordination of these emerging policies; they have high-stakes implications for international trade, international equity, and climate diplomacy. Some have suggested that BCAs could be an essential element of “climate clubs” or “climate alliances”, acting both as a common tariff-like wall, and as incentive to join. Others have called for international agreement on principles and best practice. Consequently, the exact role of the CBAM on the international arena remains a subject of debate, even as the EU process moves forward.
This session, convened by ERCST on the basis of its extensive work on the EU CBAM, will bring together global thought leaders on international climate cooperation, CBAM, and climate clubs to discuss current developments and promising options moving forward.
