Fit for 55: Role in decarbonising transport and buildings
Few aspects of the European Commission’s proposed Fit for 55 legislative package prompted as much debate as creating a separate emissions trading system for the buildings and transport sectors, the new ‘ETS2.’ Given that the Effort Sharing Regulation has thus far failed to deliver emissions reductions at the pace needed to meet climate goals, the Commission proposed this carbon pricing measure in an attempt to accelerate reductions in these laggard sectors.
Topics to be explored:
* the likely impacts of the proposal for both sectors;
* the role of carbon pricing in the electrification of buildings and transport;
* equity considerations associated with the proposal, and ways in which these concerns could be addressed.
We will allow ample opportunity for participants’ questions following the presentations.
