Emissions Trading / Carbon Market News (2017-10-09)

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

Andreas Kuhlmann from German Energy Agency, is the main initiator of a group of 15 energy experts, who require from the new elected German federal government innovative measures to encourage climate protection on a broad economic basis.

One of the central points of the proposal is a minimum price for all sectors to include for example transport sector, households or agricultures also, which are currently not included in the European Emissions Trading System. These revenues shall reduce taxes and charges and benefit the citizen by lower associated employer outlay.

This Thursday EU member states will meet for a final conference to complete the reform talks. Prior to this, the price of European Carbon Emission Allowances stays mostly stable.
