European Union Emissions Trading System (EU ETS)

Statistics report on the Emissions Trading System in the European Union

European Union Emissions Trading System (EU ETS)

The European Union Emissions Trading System (EU-ETS) became the world's first international emissions trading scheme when it launched in 2005. Since then, it has gone on to play a major role in reducing EU greenhouse gas emissions and remains a key part of the EUs policy to combat climate change.

This Statistics report covers various aspects of the EU-ETS, such as emissions allowances and verified emissions from stationary installations and aviation, carbon permit prices, auctioning revenues. It also provides forecasts and and an overview of the global carbon market.
