This meeting is the launch event of the 2018 State of the EU ETS Report. During this meeting, the authors will present the Report and their findings through a presentation, after which the Report will be discussed in a roundtable setting. 

 

The EU’s Emission Trading System has now been in operation for more than a decade, and underwent numerous reform measures, including the recently concluded Phase 4 review.

As any other undertaking it requires, periodically, an assessment regarding its well-functioning and delivery of its objectives. In this respect, the European Commission is required to annually assess, according to the EU ETS Directive, the functioning of the EU ETS and report back to the EU Parliament and Council.

While the European Commission has its role to play in providing an official report, it is also important that independent review and assessment of the functioning and delivery of the EU ETS takes place.

The “2018 State of the EU ETS” Report, the third of its kind, aims to provide such an independent contribution to the policy debate, which is needed to ensure that the EU ETS is “fit for purpose”. This Report discusses the current state of play in the EU ETS, analyses whether the system is performing and delivering, and discusses how the recently concluded Phase 4 review could affect its functioning from 2020 onwards. For all its faults, the EU ETS should not be compared to an ideal world, but the real options that would be available to address climate change. This will be the third report. 

 

The 2018 State of the EU ETS Report is a joint initiative by ERCST/ICTSD, Nomisma Energia, I4CE, Wegener Center at the University of Graz and EcoAct.

This will be the third report on the State of the EU ETS and builds on the report produced by this group of organizations in 2017, as well as the 2016 report produced by the current ERCST staff.
