The “2018 State of the EU ETS” Report aims to provide an independent contribution to the policy debate, which is needed to ensure that the EU ETS is “fit for purpose”. This report discusses the current state of play in the EU ETS, analysing whether the system is performing and delivering, and discusses how the recently concluded Phase 4 review could affect its functioning from 2020 onwards.

The meeting will include a detailed presentation by the authors Andrei Marcu (ICTSD), Matteo Mazzoni (Nomisma Energia), Emilie Alberola (EcoAct), Charlotte Vailles (I4CE), Stefan Schleicher (Wegener Center) and Jean Yves Caneill (ERCST), followed by a roundtable discussion with senior business, NGO and government representatives.

The report focuses on 5 key areas:
  1. Relevant Policy and Governance issues, including Phase 4 review
  2. Environmental delivery
  3. Economic efficiency and delivery, including protection against carbon leakage
  4. Market functioning
  5. Making the EU ETS ‘fit for purpose’: key areas to pay attention to in the future
