EU ETS reform

Thursday, 29 September 2016

The Emission Trading System (ETS) - the world's first and largest GHG trading system - is currently being revised with the aim of delivering a GHG reduction of at least 40% by 2030 compared to 1990 levels. With rail companies amongst the major users of electricity, rail is an indirect ETS sector, fully included in the system whereas aviation and road are not. CER has therefore prepared a factsheet highlighting its recommendations for a balanced carbon pricing policy accross all transport modes.
