The New EU Emissions
Trade Scheme –
How To Mitigate the Risks for European Consumers and SMEs
While the ETS is considered one of the greatest successes of EU climate policy, actual research shows that its actual impact on the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions remains limited. It’s therefore surprising that the European Commission decided to extend it to cover buildings as well as road and air transport: extending the ETS to buildings may lead to widespread energy poverty in Europe, while the introduction of additional charges for air and road transport will lead respectively to higher flight prices and hit the poorest who have no possibility of using low-emission alternatives to road transport.
