This webinar is the second of a 4-part guest-speaker webinar series devoted to discussing Emission Trading Systems (ETS), a key topic following the recent climate agreement in Paris. These webinars accompany a new free online course from the European Commission, which provides in-depth instruction on ETS theory and design.
In this 45-minute webinar, The Past, Present and Future of ETSs, guest speaker Damien Meadows (European Commission) will discuss the evolution of existing carbon markets forecast the future of emerging emission trading systems around the world. Mr. Meadows will deliver a candid discussion of what building the EU ETS was like and will comment on the utility of ETSs in the INDCs proposed at the climate summit (COP21) in Paris. For those currently taking the European Commission’s online course, this topic is most relevant to Units 5 and 6.
Host Elizabeth Zelljadt (Ecologic Institute) will provide course context and facilitate a question and answer session between the guest speaker and participants.
If you are unable to participate, a recording of each webinar will be made available on the course website.
There is no registration fee to attend or view any of the recorded webinars. The entire online course is free and requires no registration.
