Green Steel: CBAM and ETS – Do their current designs aid EU climate ambitions?

9 February @ 2:00 pm - 3:15 pm CET

This EURACTIV Virtual Conference aims to discuss the impact of the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism and Emissions Trading System mechanisms on the steel industry.

These are some of the questions this conference will try to answer:

– Is the Fit for 55 Package also “fit” to ensure a level playing field between EU steelmakers and non-EU-steelmakers?
– In light of the current energy and carbon prices spikes, how can the phasing out of free allowances be implemented in a sustainable way?
– Can the CBAM coexist with the current system of free allowances?
– Why should we need export adjustments and to what extent are they compliant with WTO requirements?
– Investments in breakthrough technologies and affordable CO2-free energy are key for scaling up low-carbon steel projects already in progress. How can those needs be met, while creating lead markets for the greener but also more expensive EU steel?
