Event description
The role of the EU's Emissions Trading System in combating the climate crisis

About this event

On 14 July, the European Commission launched the Fit-for-55 package, a large set of legislative proposals to revise the EU 2030 climate and energy framework. Key elements of the package are the revision and scaling up of the Emissions Trading System (ETS) to cover a broader array of sectors, introducing a Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism  (CBAM), and the creation of a Social Climate Fund among other proposals.  

With the Fit-for-55 package, the European Commission aims to achieve a 55% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, and net-zero emissions by 2050. But is the package ambitious enough to achieve this goal? 

By shedding the light on how Europe’s carbon pricing will unfold, the event will discuss the opportunities and challenges in the reformed ETS; how will it lead Europe to climate neutrality? And how can the ETS ensure a just transition for society and the climate?  

Join us on January 25 for this lively debate with panelists from different sectors, including trade unions, academia, private sector and civil society organisations.
