ETS training for Samsung

Carbon pricing initiatives and new emissions trading schemes (ETS) are emerging worldwide. Korea is starting an ETS from 2015 onwards. Sharing expertise from a long ETS track-record, Ecofys supported Samsung, Asia’s biggest technology company headquartered in Korea, to organise and strategically prepare for this new trading scheme.

In five days of training, the Samsung delegates were familiarised with roles and responsibilities needed to comply with ETS obligations and how best to organise these tasks. Further insights concerned carbon management and decision making, risk mitigation, and trading details. Thanks to our broad experience in emissions trading in different sectors and markets, we were also able to provide Samsung with sector specific insights and lessons learnt from the EU-ETS or the ETS pilots in China. The training also comprised an exchange with representatives from European companies and international carbon financing institutions.
