Design effective carbon pricing

Stay on top of international carbon pricing developments

Whatever carbon pricing insights you need, talk to Ecofys. We have assisted the World Bank to write its annual flagship report State and Trends of Carbon Pricing for the past four years, and we are undertaking innovative research in this field. For example, we are examining the impacts of carbon pricing along the value chain for Al Gore’s Generation Foundation. Then there’s our hands-on experience of designing carbon pricing instruments around the world, and our involvement in capacity building. Ecofys has been actively involved in the voluntary carbon markets and in the project-based offset mechanisms established under the Kyoto protocol, such as the Clean Development Mechanism. Our expertise extends to upcoming mechanisms, such as Results-Based Financing and those referred to in Article 6 of the Paris Agreement. We will guide you through the maze of global carbon pricing approaches.

Enhancing design and operation of the EU ETS

Providing the foundation for our international carbon pricing work, Ecofys’ experts have advised the European Commission and other stakeholders on designing the European Union’s (EU) Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS), from its conception. In the run up to phase IV, Ecofys continues to provide independent analyses for multiple clients on the potential impacts of proposed design options. We have assessed carbon-leakage protection measures, the benchmark-based allocation, and the market-stability reserve. Draw on our wide-ranging expertise to answer any EU ETS related queries you may have.

Our carbon pricing activities are not limited to designing and evaluating policies.
