As the dust settles on 2017 EU ETS compliance the temptation is to forget about the EU ETS for another year. However, this year has reminded companies that EUA price can go up as well as down with many facing compliance costs three times those of last year. The MSR is expected to cause prices to be higher again this time next year so now is the time to make sure you and your company are prepared for 2018 compliance and beyond.
For the third year in a row, the international Carbon Forward 2018 conference addresses the challenges in achieving a deeper understanding of the risks and opportunities installations face in ever-changing carbon regulation.
The increasing cost of compliance with the EU ETS inevitably attracts attention from Senior Management. Decisions about what to do must be made based on a good understanding of the risks: new benchmarks, leakage lists and historical emissions will affect your free allocation and the Market Stability Reserve and a declining pool of EUAs will affect carbon prices. Coupled with growing consumer pressure and caps on aviation emissions, companies are facing more and more carbon market risk.
You can dip in and out of Carbon Forward’s three-day programme based on our unique ticketing structure. It commences on Tuesday 16th October 2018 with Redshaw Advisors EU ETS training day, continues on the 17th with a day dedicated to the EU ETS and is topped off with a packed programme on international carbon markets on the 18th. To help you ‘Survive and thrive in carbon markets’ Carbon Forward 2018 will bring together installations, policy makers, traders and service providers that shape the carbon markets to exchange views and learn from each other so that they can more effectively manage risk.
The Carbon Forward 2018 conference will take place in the 5-star Canary Riverside Plaza Hotel in London. The working language for the conference is English and participation is open to all. To receive regular updates on the conference including special offers you can register your interest here.
