Looking Back at en Years of the EU Emission Trading System (ETS) – May 21, 2015 – Florence, Italy
In 2005 the European Union Emission Trading System (EU ETS) came into being and has since become the largest carbon market in Europe. Over its first decade the EU ETS has given rise to many valuable lessons for governments across the world in considering carbon pricing as a cost-effective way to control greenhouse gas emissions.
This conference will take stock of the challenges, lessons and achievements of the EU ETS in Europe and in the rest of the world and discuss future perspectives.
This event is organised in collaboration with DG Climate Action, European Commission, and is by invitation only.
Prof. Carlo Carraro, Coordinator of the Research Programme on “Climate Change and Sustainable Development” at FEEM, will take part in the session “Looking Forward: What Next for the EU ETS?”, to be held on May21st.
