Webinar: Launch of the “Border Carbon Adjustments in the EU – Issues and Options” Report
September 30, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
This webinar will launch the “Border Carbon Adjustments in the EU – Issues and Options” Report. The authors will present the Report and their findings through a presentation, after which the Report will be commented on by some invited speakers and a Q&A.
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, ERCST has examined 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.
ERCST has held in-person meetings and webinars to engage stakeholders and experts across the EU, including events in various EU capitals and Town Halls with prestigious institutions from trade partner countries, such as USA, India, South Korea, Japan, Russia, Ukraine, South Africa and Mexico. The outcome of these discussions will be presented in the Report.
ERCST’s project on border carbon adjustment is supported by Eurofer, Enel, FuelsEurope, the Government of France, the Government of Germany, HeidelbergCement, MetInvest, and Solvay.
