Stakeholder meeting “Border Carbon Adjustments in the EU: Issues and Options” – April 2020 Update

April 15 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

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, it is an opportune time to have a closer look at 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 videoconference will be an opportunity for invited stakeholders to contribute to a draft paper being prepared by Andrei Marcu, Michael Mehling, and Aaron Cosbey. The meeting will feature a panel conversation with leading thinkers on the issues, and offers an opportunity for interaction with policymakers and stakeholders.

This is the second stakeholder event for this ERCST project on border carbon adjustment, which is supported by Eurofer, Enel, FuelsEurope, the French government, the German government, HeidelbergCement, MetInvest, and Solvay.
