2022 has been a crucial year for emissions trading systems (ETS) around the world, as countries took steps to meet their net-zero commitments while grappling with the first truly global energy crisis. These challenges have not slowed down the momentum for ETS implementation. As of 2023, 28 ETSs are in force worldwide – 3 more than last year – with 20 more systems under development or consideration. Domestic carbon markets cover about 17% of global emissions and have generated more than USD 63 billion in auction revenues in one year. 

These are some key figures drawn from our new ICAP Status Report 2023 on Emissions Trading Worldwide, to be published on March 22.

The annual ICAP Status Report is a cornerstone publication for the carbon market community. The 2023 edition once again provides a comprehensive snapshot of the latest ETS developments from around the world from systems that are in operation, scheduled, or under consideration. The Status Report features up-to-date factsheets alongside infographics that visualize the characteristics of the different systems. In-depth articles from policymakers and carbon market experts also provide insights into the latest ETS trends across the globe.

To accompany the release of the Status Report, ICAP will be hosting two public webinars timed to accommodate the global reach of the ETS community. Representatives of ETS jurisdictions will share the latest developments and future prospects from their systems, and the ICAP Secretariat will offer a closer look at the key messages of the 2023 Status Report.

The dates, times, and regional focuses of the two webinars are below. Use the links to register. 

      We look forward to seeing you there.
