What is the EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS)?
The EU Emissions Trading System (AKA EU Emissions Trading Scheme) is a multi-sector greenhouse gas (GHG) trading system covering organisations with very intensive energy input. Participation in the scheme is decided through the size of an organisation’s combustion equipment.
The system works on a ‘cap and trade’ basis. Organisational emissions are capped and allowances allocated. Excess allowances generated by reducing carbon emissions can be sold on the market to companies that emit more than their allowance. By reducing the number of allowances allocated, organisations choose between paying more for allowances and reducing energy-related emissions.
The aim of the system is to cut EU emissions to achieve carbon reduction targets.
