The Future of Carbon Emissions Trading in China
Join us as we learn more about China's upcoming national carbon trading policy and what it might mean for the industry.
China Carbon Forum's Research Manager, Huw Slater, will discuss the impact of China's upcoming national carbon emissions trading market on industry, and present the results of the 2017 China Carbon Pricing Survey. The results of the survey give strong confidence that carbon price levels in China will rise over time, and that carbon pricing will increasingly affect investment decisions.
In the lead up to the national ETS, significant capacity building has been conducted, but much more is needed. ETS is expected to become the most important policy instrument to motivate companies to reduce GHG emissions in the coming years, helping China to meet its target to peak emissions by 2030. Key decisions will continue to be made about its design, and the system will continue to be fine-tuned during its first phase of operation (2017 – 2020).
