What is EU ETS?

The European Union Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) is an EU policy to combat climate change.

It’s a key tool for reducing greenhouse gas emissions in a cost effective manner and the world’s largest and first carbon market.

Over 11,000 power stations and plants are included, with around 1,000 of these being in the UK. Some organisations such as hospitals and universities may also be covered depending on the equipment they have on site.

The EU ETS places a cap on the amount of greenhouse gases that can be produced by participants by giving them a set allowance. This can be traded, auctioned off or sometimes allocated for free.

CO2 emissions must be monitored and reported and handed into the relevant authorities to be tracked. If a company exceeds its allowance, they can purchase more. Likewise if they have reduced their emissions down, they can sell the left over credits.
