The EU in search of a WTO-compatible Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism
The proposed European Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism seeks to curb carbon leakage, which undermines the EU’s ambitious goal of climate neutrality by 2050. This column explores whether the mechanism succeed in reducing carbon leakage, while at the same time restoring a level playing field for EU producers and minimising the likelihood of WTO panels or retaliation by trading partners. The authors argue that the mechanism will significantly curb European carbon leakages, but at a cost. The EU member states will need at the very least to agree on how to end free allowances to be compatible with the WTO. Cecilia Bellora, Lionel Fontagné
