Key topics on the agenda


To what extent can a flagship policy of European climate action achieve both of its core goals? We assess the composition of the CBAM set against the range of policy instruments and decisions that are available, and the consequences its application would have over the medium to long-term for those operating under the EU ETS - especially when pertaining to sectoral coverage, free allowances, indirect carbon costs and long-term political support. Finally, it is beneficial to question how a CBAM would interact with alternative instruments of climate policy to further consolidate European efforts to meet the 2030 targets.

The panellists will assess the proposals outlined by Mark Carney’s Taskforce and quantify their potential impact by examining how standardising carbon credits as a commodity could change the dynamic of the market. How might it affect project development and the relationship between buyers and developers? Would it deliver a stable and higher price, and is further action required to increase engagement with green financiers and governments?

Taking all considerations into account the panellists will be challenged to name exact predictions for the EUA price on 1 December 2021, 1 July 2022 and 1 July 2025, giving clear indications of the market factors influencing their thinking. At the end of the session each will settle on three figures to match the three dates and the audience will be invited to vote for the panellist whose explanations they found most convincing, with the one receiving the most votes elected the winner.
