The latest EU’s Emissions Trading System (ETS) revision came to an end when the trilogues were finally concluded on 18 December 2022. The revision aimed to ensure that the ETS would align with the ‘Fit for 55’ package, reflecting the EU’s increased ambition in emissions reductions.

The last intense months of negotiations included critical discussions on overall targets, the inclusion of other sectors, revised rules for free allocations, and the functioning of the Innovation and Modernisation Funds.

Now it’s time to unpack this deal, so this fifth ETS Talk will focus on the main outcomes (good and bad) and what lies ahead for governments, people and industries. 


– What are the main takeaways from the negotiations?

– What are the main challenges and opportunities facing governments, industries and citizens?

– Is the new ETS fit for purpose?

– Can the agreed Social Climate Fund (SCF) adequately respond to the risks and challenges posed to European households by the ETS2?
