Launch of the Carbon Pricing Hub

Wednesday, December 8, 2021

Join Carbonkiller in a lively debate with EU politicians, academics, trade union and companies about the challenges and opportunities of the ETS!

WISE Netherlands, the organization behind Carbonkiller, is part of a consortium called LIFE ETX. The 10 European NGOs in this consortium aim to create more awareness about the Emission Trading System and advocate to strengthen the system. As part of this initiative, WISE will launch a Carbon Pricing Hub on January 25, 2021. You are invited to join this online event on the chances and challenges for the EU ETS in the Fit for 55 package. 



On 14 July, the European Commission launched the Fit-for-55 package, a large set of legislative proposals to revise the EU 2030 climate and energy framework. Key elements of the package are the revision and scaling up of the Emissions Trading System (ETS) to cover a broader array of sectors, introducing a Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM), and the creation of a Social Climate Fund among other proposals.

With the Fit-for-55 package, the European Commission aims to achieve a 55% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, and net-zero emissions by 2050. But is the package ambitious enough to achieve this goal?

By shedding the light on how Europe’s carbon pricing will unfold, the event will discuss the opportunities and challenges in the reformed ETS; how will it lead Europe to climate neutrality? And how can the ETS ensure a just transition for society and the climate?

Join us in this lively debate, with panellists from different sectors including the
labour union, academics, the private sector and civil society.

The event is part of a series of meet-ups that will enable exchange between EU representatives, NGOs, business stakeholders, trade unions and research institutes in a Carbon Pricing Hub with the aim of sharing knowledge, research and policy making  recommendations in relation to Emissions Trading.
