Introduction

The EU ETS is the cornerstone of the EU’s climate policy as well as still today the largest emissions trading scheme in the world. Launched in 2005, the EU ETS regulates greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from more than 11,000 heavy energy-using and power generating installations and airlines, covering about 45% of the EU’s total GHG emissions. 31 countries participate in the scheme: the 28 EU Member States plus Lichtenstein, Norway and Iceland.

Though it can be of use to any EU ETS stakeholder, this online training course aims to provide policy makers in the first place with a comprehensive analysis of the functioning of the European carbon market and of its performance.
