The European Union’s carbon market has now been in operation for more than a decade with numerous past and on-going reform efforts following its initial roll out. 

In November 2015, the European Commission released its “Report on the functioning of the European carbon market” for 2013-14, an annual report mandated by the EU ETS Directive. Alongside this assessment, there has been much discussion of reviewing and revising EU ETS Phase 4, as well as the so-called Winter Package. Two overarching questions frame this conversation: is the system delivering and is the market working.

 

ERCST/ICTSD working in partnership with Nomisma Energy, the Wegener Centre at the University of Graz, and I4CE lead a brainstorming session with selected stakeholders and policy makers to discuss the outline of the “2017 State of the EU ETS Report,” while also examining the wider dialogue surrounding the review of EU ETS Phase 4.

This meeting is a briefing for the Brussels policy stakeholder community on developments on carbon markets in the UNFCCC negotiations.

Article 6 of the Paris Agreement addresses the issue of “cooperative approaches” under the new climate regime. A significant part of it creates the framework to ensure that international markets can be a tool to meet Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) under the Paris Agreement.

After COP 21 in Paris, negotiators have a mandate to create a rulebook to ensure that this, and other parts of the climate agreement, become operational. With the agreement entering into force sooner than many had anticipated, negotiators are aiming for completing this task in 2018 at COP 23, which will take place in Poland.

This meeting is an opportunity for stakeholders to be briefed by some of the most knowledge participants in these negotiations to understand the state of play, the main issues, and implications for the market and EU climate change policy. There will be a number of presentations, followed by a moderated roundtable discussion.
