Recordings and presentations available of ICAP hosted webinar on using revenue from emissions trading.

How can auctioning revenues from an emissions trading system be used to either enhance the mitigation effect of the ETS, for instance by investing in additional mitigation potential or removing barriers to cost-effective mitigation, or to cushion adverse effects of carbon pricing, such as distributional impacts and cost increases? As public budgets strain in the wake of the global coronavirus pandemic, and with jurisdictions facing daunting investment needs to achieve ambitious climate commitments, emissions trading can serve as an important source of revenue. This ICAP webinar introduced all of these issues and provided further insights of revenue use from emission trading systems. 

Main presenter of this webinar was Dallas Burtraw from Resources for the Future, discusants were Anaïs Jalbert from the Québec Ministry of the Environment and the Fight against Climate Change as well as Katja Schumacher from Öko-Institut.

The event formed part of the ETS for Policy Practitioners webinar series hosted by ICAP with support from the European Commission.
