FSR Webinar

Speaker: Fabien Roques (FSR; Compass Lexecon; Université Paris Dauphine)

Under the 2030 Climate and Energy Framework, the European Union has committed to EU-wide targets for the period 2021-2030 in the context of a long-term strategy to achieve a climate-neutral economy by 2050. Among these targets is a 40% cut in greenhouse gas emissions. The EU emissions trading system (EU ETS) is the cornerstone of the EU’s policy to combat climate change. It is the world’s first major carbon market and remains it’s largest. To safeguard the competitiveness of industries covered by the EU ETS, the European Commission has developed a framework to provide compensation for the sectors and sub-sectors deemed to be exposed to a risk of carbon leakage.

In this webinar, Fabien Roques will review the status of carbon pricing at global level and weigh the effectiveness of the EU ETS and its impact on competition across various industries before examining the theoretical framework established to deal with the risk of carbon leakage for the direct and indirect carbon costs that they face as a result of the EU ETS.
