Latest on the EU ETS: structural reform, the aviation industry and prospects for international integration

5 December 2013, London

Delegates at this seminar will examine the latest developments in the EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) and the way forward for the system pending a series of structural changes.

With plans to withhold the auctioning of 900 million excess carbon credits until 2018-20 having been approved in Brussels - reversing the decision that the European Parliament had made earlier in the year - planned sessions assess the results of the EU ETS's first round of allowance auctions, ongoing issues surrounding structural reform and its overall impact on the value of the EU ETS market moving forward.

Further discussion will focus on the work being carried out to secure a global solution on aviation emissions - with the EU having agreed 'stop the clock' legislation and temporarily suspended the inclusion of international flights from the EU ETS - and will assess the challenges of the EU's ambition to link up its own ETS with compatible systems around the world and form a global carbon market.

We are delighted that Dr Pierre Dechamps, Adviser for Energy, Climate Change and the Environment, Bureau of European Policy Advisers to President Barroso, European Commission and Niall Mackenzie, Head, Industrial Energy Efficiency, Department of Energy and Climate Change have agreed to deliver keynote addresses at this seminar.
