During this event we will dive into the recent trends in regulated carbon markets and explore their links and connections, including with voluntary carbon markets (VCMs). In the last years, the number of carbon taxes and Emissions Trading Systems (ETSs) has grown worldwide. However, the integration of these systems has progressed slowly due to divergent design features, such as permit types, sectoral coverage, and monitoring methods, reflecting each domestic context. Connections between ETSs and VCMs have also stalled due to concerns about credit quality, monitoring, reporting, and verification issues connected with offsets. Do the recent findings reflect progress towards further integration, and can we detect a trend towards more aligned ambition and more consistent market regulation?

This panel represents the first part of the annual Net Zero Carbon Market Policy Dialogue (NZCMPD) organised under the framework of the LIFE COASE project. The aim of the policy dialogue is to facilitate international carbon market cooperation between the EU and partner jurisdictions on key topics around net-zero regulation and integration of carbon markets. It will assess the state of play on international carbon markets in view of addressing in a later phase the methods and findings of ex-ante and ex-post assessments of the EU ETS and other ETSs worldwide.

This event is organised by FSR Climate and will take place before the opening of the EUI Climate Week 2024.
