The Chinese government announced that it will implement a nationwide emissions trading scheme (ETS) in 2017, having pilot trading systems in seven cities set up since 2011. The ETS will cover key emissions intensive industries including power generation, iron & steel, chemicals, construction manufacturing and pulp & paper.

The European Union (EU) – China ETS Project was initiated in 2014 to support the design and implementation of greenhouse gas emissions trading in China. ICF International is leading the International Technical Assistance Team (ITAT) that is assisting China in its efforts to meet its emission reduction targets and low carbon development in designing and implementing its emissions trading system. ICF is working in partnership with Sinocarbon, SQ Consult and Ecofys.

The project trained over 1,100 people until December 2015. Participants include senior officials from central and local government departments, senior managers from State Owned Enterprises and technical experts.  The project has arranged technical workshops and training materials, train-the-trainers events, webinars, study assignments, expert roundtable discussions and peer-to-peer exchanges.  It has enabled the establishment of ETS communities of practice and related technical working groups in China. The project’s work continues through 2016 with a further series of training courses that will reinforce the train-trainers approach, study visits to UK, Belgium and Germany and other support activities planned to help China’s readiness to start its national ETS by 2017.

This is a EU-China ETS Project event jointly organized with BEN and the China Carbon Forum (CCF) and will feature a panel of carbon market experts and government officials from EU and China to discuss the state of ETS development in China and the European perspective on what to expect regarding challenges and future outlook after its official launch in 2017.
