Period of consultation

Objective of the consultation

The purpose of this consultation is to seek stakeholder views on the adoption of the forthcoming Regulation (hereinafter the 'Regulation') setting out the modalities for the EU-wide auctioning of emission allowances. The Commission is committed to an inclusive approach when developing and implementing EU policies. Member States, emitters of greenhouse gases (GHGs), in particular CO2 otherwise known as carbon, that are covered by the European Union's Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) and other stakeholders, including non-governmental organisations involved in the implementation of the EU ETS, as well as participants in the European carbon market, have valuable information and experience to contribute to the Commission's decision making process. Their views may inform the Commission how to design and implement EU-wide carbon auctions and how to draft the Regulation.
