Carbon Border Adjustment

Tuesday, 26 October

The EU is considering imposing a carbon border tax which will be imposed on countries exporting its manufactured goods to the region. The idea is to level the playing field with domestic players who are already paying for the carbon footprint with the emission trading scheme and stop carbon leakage. Even though there are many who believe that such a tax would be running afoul of WTO and will be facing court challenges, but EU regulators believe that this is in sync with existing trading treaties. In this session we will discuss the proposal, how it might impact plastics and what companies can expect under various scenarios.
