Tuesday, July 27 2021 | What you should know about the European carbon border adjustment mechanism (4 pm BST)
European leaders have recently committed to reducing emissions in the Union by at least 55% by 2030 (compared with the 1990 level). To achieve such a steep improvement, a complex and holistic legislative package — Fit for 55 — was presented by policymakers on 14 July 2021.
One of the most consequential legislative proposals included in the above-mentioned package is the carbon border adjustment mechanism (CBAM). This mechanism is intended to impose a levy on products from certain sectors imported into the European Union from countries that do not put a price on greenhouse gas emissions. The implementation of such a mechanism will be complex and will have a major impact on global operations and international commerce.
