EU Commission to bring forward carbon market reform before 2021

21/05/2014 00:32


The European Commission is open to hasten an anticipated 2021 start date for the initiation of controls to cut the massive overabundance of permits influencing the EU Emissions Trading System, as stated by the Commission’s major climate official.

According to Jos Delbeke, the Commission approved the institution of a so-called “market stability reserve” before time, a move backed by environment ministers from Germany, Britain, Denmark and Sweden. The Commission suggested in January a new method to diminish the excess of permits should be established when the scheme’s fourth trading phase is scheduled to start in 2021. The oversupply, which has generated a decline in EU carbon prices, had exceeded 2.1 billion units.
