The EU ETS and its role for decarbonisation and a fair green transition in the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary
20 APRIL 2022 | 9:00 – 13:00 CET | ONLINE
EU policies, such as a reformed Emissions Trading System (ETS), are key for ensuring the rapid decarbonisation of heavy industry. But complementary interventions on a domestic level are also necessary to respond to the climate emergency.
EU climate policies and instruments such as the EU ETS remain crucial in achieving the goals of the European Green Deal. It is vital to understand these interventions on the European level in order to ensure a smooth implementation on the national level.
In the environment of high energy prices, a reformed EU ETS is key for a fair transition and successful decarbonisation. The Russian invasion of Ukraine only increased the need for a quick end to the European fossil fuel addiction, which could also be aided by a more refined and efficient EU ETS. To discuss these matters, the Association for International Affairs (AMO) invites you to a workshop which will focus on questions such as:
- What are the key elements and challenges relating to the functioning of the EU ETS?
- What are the benefits of the EU ETS at the national level in the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary?
- How are Member States using their auctioning revenues?
- How can the EU ETS help achieve a fair green transition?
- What is the outlook of the EU ETS and what is the current reform about?
|Session 1||Functioning, evolution and the reform of the EU ETS|
|Session 2||How can the EU ETS help stimulate the green transition in the environment of high energy prices?|
