PMR Perspectives Series - From Theory to Practice: Launch of the ETS Handbook (Revised and Updated)
Growing ambition in jurisdictions’ climate targets has resulted in an increased adoption of Emissions Trading Systems (ETSs). Currently, 38 countries, 18 states or provinces, and 6 cities have adopted an ETS and additional systems are under development. While not a silver bullet, an ETS can help ensure jurisdictions meet their targets at least cost. However, to maximize its effectiveness, an ETS needs to be designed in line with a jurisdiction’s context.

This event will mark the release of the updated version of the ETS Handbook jointly developed by the PMR and the International Carbon Action Partnership (ICAP). The updated Handbook has drawn from recent learnings gained over the last five years as jurisdictions around the world have gathered experience in designing, implementing and refining ETSs.

This event will provide an overview of the key design elements and policy issues as well as highlight experiences and lessons learned from jurisdictions that have implemented an ETS.
