  • EU Climate Diplomacy Leadership and the Carbon Border Tax

    Since the carbon border adjustment mechanism (CBAM) was first introduced as a key pillar of the European Green Deal, how has the EU consultation process reshaped the perceptions and priorities of EU institutions? What are the main stumbling blocks between the Member States? How are industries responding? How will the CBAM be reconciled with the EU emissions trading scheme during the transitional period? How has the EU progressed in dialogue with key trading partners? What is the path forward within and outside of multilateral trade institutions as part of the wider international climate dialogue?
