题 目：EU-ETS (2005-2015): Lessons from a Decennial Experience
主 讲：Christian de Perthuis（巴黎第九大学经济学教授、法国研究平台Climate Economics Chair主席）
简介: The carbon emission trading scheme has been launched in Europe in January 2005. It is a cornerstone of the European Union’s policy to combat climate change and its key tool for reducing industrial greenhouse gas emissions cost-effectively. Covering the CO2 emissions from industry and energy sectors, the EU-ETS is the largest cap and trade system in the world. What lessons can we draw from a decennial experience in terms of carbon pricing? This presentation will be based on the book Carbon Pricing, published by Cambridge University Press, as well as several recent papers published by the Climate Economics Chair, especially Governance of CO2 Markets: Lessons from the EU-ETS (2014).
