EU Emission Trading System: Our 5 recommendations for a sensible use of the "Modernisation Fund"
By David Donnerer | 1003 visits
The EU Emission Trading System (ETS), launched in 2005, is a pillar of EU climate policy and the largest system of its kind.

However, the EU ETS has so far failed to deliver, resulting in a carbon price of only €5 and billions of Euros of profits for carbon polluting industries. Moreover, the top-down EU ETS has not been faithful to Europe's democratic model. In the ongoing ETS reform, it is therefore crucial to change its purpose, so it serves the locally driven energy transition.
