Supplementary notes

European Union Emissions Trading Scheme (EU-ETS) is the largest greenhouse gas emissions trading scheme in the world.

The source notes that all data are presented in current prices i.e. not adjusted for inflation.

The European Union emissions trading scheme was introduced in 2005. It is designed to help limit greenhouse gas emissions from heavy energy using installations by setting a cap on allowable greenhouse gas emissions from such installations. Companies with such installations receive or buy emissions allowances which they can trade with one another as needed. A limit on the total number of allowances available ensures they have a value. Each year a company must surrender enough emissions allowances to cover its emissions, otherwise fines are imposed. If a company reduces its emissions, it can keep spare allowances to cover its future needs or sell them to other companies. In January 2021, a UK version of the ETS replaced the EU scheme following the UK’s exit from the EU.
