Creating Markets for Low Carbon Products in the EU

6 06+01:00 October 06+01:00 2020 @ 15:00 - 17:00

This meeting is under Chatham House Rules / No press 

This event is part of ERCST’s ‘Creating Markets for Low Carbon Products in the EU’ series and it will focus on identifying the supply- and demand-side policies to stimulate the creation of a (domestic) market for low-carbon products.
In this webinar, we want to understand the pluses and minuses of introducing policies aimed at incentivising demand for low carbon products:

  • Who will have to pay the bill?
  • Are there alternative approaches that could be adopted?
  • Companies are increasingly being pushed to produce low carbon products, but for what purpose?
  • What can be done to ensure that ‘green’ products will be competitive on the market?
  • Is it more effective to level the playing field at the border with a carbon adjustment (BCA), or internally through other incentives on the EU market?

This session will cover in particular the case of creating a market for low carbon materials to manufacture cars and other road vehicles. The current EU legislation targets the emissions generated in the use phase by setting binding COemission targets for new vehicles, to reduce the tailpipe emissions. However, policies aimed at incentivising the use of low carbon materials to reduce the climate impact of vehicles over their entire life cycle are missing. ERCST will conduct detailed mapping of the existing road transport policy in the EU to identify gaps and present needs to policy makers. The discussion will help to put forward and explore solutions to encourage demand for low carbon products from the automotive sector.
