The Future of Agriculture in the EU ETS – Public Event

March 22 @ 10:00 - 12:00

This was an in-person event. 

* Registrations are closed.

Agriculture is responsible for 13% of EU’s GHS[1], and the sector’s emissions have not decreased since 2010. Following the example of the recent extension of carbon pricing to road transport and buildings, emission trading in agriculture could provide the right incentives to decarbonise this sector.

This public event explored with stakeholders and policy makers the role agriculture can play as part of net zero, with a focus on its potential extension to carbon pricing. It addressed how feasible is pricing agricultural emissions and rewarding climate action in the land sector.
