UK consults on four carbon pricing routes post-Brexit

A joint consultation over the future of carbon pricing in the UK, once the country leaves the EU and its emissions trading scheme, has been launched by all countries in the union.

Four options for what happens to the EU emission trading system post-Brexit have been proposed, including a linked carbon trading system with the EU, a standalone UK ETS, a carbon tax or an option to remain in the EU ETS.

Currently all EU ETS participants are required to monitor their emissions during each calendar year, and at the end of each reporting year, surrender one emissions allowance for every tonne of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) they have emitted.
