About this event

The European Union’s Emissions Trading System (ETS) is a cornerstone of the EU's energy and climate policies. By putting a price on CO2, it creates incentives to reduce emissions.

A complex interlinkage of different factors and dynamics affect carbon prices on the EU ETS, including geopolitical and socioeconomic development.

This third ETS Talks will identify the factors influencing the evolution and volatility of the EU ETS, particularly against the backdrop of the war in Ukraine.

Key questions on the agenda:

How do international geopolitical and socioeconomic factors affect the EU ETS?

How is the war in Ukraine affecting the carbon price?

What is the role of speculation and other dynamics in the EU ETS?
