This new report examines one of the most critical issues in the current political debate on the EU’s Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM): the treatment of exports. Exports are currently not covered by the European Commission’s CBAM proposal. However, there are concerns that the exclusion of exports will open-up an export-related carbon leakage channel, thereby harming EU competitiveness and climate ambition. In this report, ERCST presents its recommendations on how to address exports in the EU CBAM.
