Seminar Content

Regulating carbon emissions in the transport sector that amounts for 15% of global greenhouse gas emissions can be challenging.

However there are policies adopted at the regional level and international negotiations are ongoing. This talk will look into what kind of carbon reduction policies and measures for transport are adopted at the EU level and what kind of measures are needed to achieve carbon reduction in the transport sector at the global level. It will also look into co-benefits of reducing CO2 emissions from transport. During the talk some simulation results from the energy-environment-economy model at the global level (E3MG) will be presented and the recent issues related to the inclusion of aviation in the EU ETS will be discussed.
