This event will be the first in a series of discussions aimed at starting a public debate on the future design of the carbon emissions trading market for Ukraine in the process of European integration.

The creation of a quota trading market is one of the country’s obligations under the Association Agreement with the EU. At the same time, the strengthening of requirements for the bloc’s member states and trading partners regarding compliance with social and environmental standards requires Ukraine to take decisive action in meeting climate goals, launch a market carbon pricing mechanism, develop financing tools for projects to reduce emissions and prevent carbon leakage.

As GMK Center reported earlier, the Ukrainian analytical center and consulting company GMK Center has been a member of the EBA since 2019, and is also a member of the Association’s Industrial Ecology and Sustainable Development Committee.
