and implementation of an Emissions Trading Systems in China
SFW is delighted to announce that it will be using its considerable Emissions Trading System (ETS) implementation experience working with Ecofys to support the design and implementation of an ETS in China. Ecofys is a key partner of a consortium, with SQ Consult, Sino Carbon and led by ICF International, that has been assigned to support the design and implementation of Emissions Trading Systems in China. The project, funded by the European Commission (EuropeAid), will support the Chinese national and regional authorities via a series of activities and will run for three years.
In the inception phase, the exact scope of the project will be defined, but likely components include the development and roll-out of an extensive training programme on emissions trading for Chinese government officials, the set-up and execution of a helpdesk and the formation of rapid response teams able to support the Chinese government with detailed technical issues related to the set-up of emissions trading in China. Ecofys experts from both its Beijing and its international offices will be involved and are expected to have an important role in the support work around allocation and cap-setting.
