A window of opportunity to reform the EU ETS is currently open but closing soon: the EU ETS directive is currently being revised for its Phase IV (2021-2030), and trilogue negotiations between EU institutions, started in April 2017, will probably succeed in the fall.

I4CEEnerdata and IFPEN demonstrate in their report that the reform proposals from the EU Parliament and the EU Council are not sufficient to make the EU ETS a driver of decarbonisation in industry and energy sectors over its Phase IV (2021-2030).

The report analyzes greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions, the cost of necessary abatements, the functioning of the Market Stability Reserve and the framework of free allocation to industries. The report also examines the impacts of an exit of the UK from the EU ETS, as well as the possible introduction of a price corridor on the EU ETS.


16h30      Is the EU ETS reform sufficient to drive decarbonation in industry and energy sectors over its Phase IV?

    A Framework for Alignment with the Paris Agreement: Why, What and How for Financial Institutions?

    Since the adoption of the Paris Agreement, financial institutions and other economic actors have taken commitments to ‘align’ their activities with the goals agreed to by national governments in 2015.

    Do not measure the impact of the Green Climate Fund- only – by its billions

    On 25 October, a conference was held in Paris to “replenish” the resources of the Green Climate Fund. 27 countries have made pledges, for a total amount of nearly $10 billion. Good news? Insufficient? For Alice Pauthier of [i4ce], the impact of the Green Climate Fund should not only be assessed against this figure. The Fund also has a transformational effect, particularly on the many financial institutions that, in order to access its resources, must follow an accreditation process. A process that may well become more and more demanding.
