13 june panel discussion: The road ahead for the EU ETS and CBAM after the EU elections

Following June’s European Parliament elections, it is crucial that the EU prioritises and strengthens policy instruments that decarbonise the EU’s economy and society.

The Life ETX consortium invites you to join us on June 13 for keynote speeches and panel discussions featuring leading policymakers, researchers and civil society representatives to discuss the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM) and the justness of the EU’s Emissions Trading System for road transport and buildings (ETS2).

Panel discussion 2 on the Emissions Trading System for road transport and buildings (ETS 2)
