About this talk

Having implemented a legally binding medium-term target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 55% relative to 1990 by 2030, the European Union arguably has articulated one of the most ambitious climate goals in the world. The EU Emissions Trading System (ETS) is the centrepiece of its strategy. Sectors covered by EU ETS have delivered the largest reductions in greenhouse gas emissions so far. In its “Fit for 55” legislative package, the EU has positioned itself to expand the EU ETS and more aggressively constrain the supply of EU Allowances (i.e. climate or carbon credits), that companies need to emit greenhouse gas emissions. In doing so, they’re likely to drive up the price of Allowances i.e. the EU’s market price of carbon. In this session we will explore: + Why the EU prefers this market-based emissions abatement strategy + What the latest round of legislative changes could mean for carbon prices + How will doubling down on the EU ETS strategy accelerate the energy transition During this week of webinars, we explore the commodities that will enable the decarbonisation effort and energy transition, as well help navigate clients through this emerging megatrend. + Platinum’s role in the energy transition: From abatement technology to the hydrogen economy + Copper’s role in the energy transition: the metal for electrification + Nickel’s role in the energy transition: Electric vehicle battery demand to transform nickel’s demand profile
