The EU has a set of policies to reduce emissions, promote clean energy and energy efficiency, and facilitate Europe’s transition to a low-carbon economy. The emission trading system (ETS), which has created the world’s largest carbon market, is by itself the most important tool.
The EU ETS does not cover approximately 55 percent of the EU’s emissions. Such sectors include transport, construction, agriculture and waste management. The Member States have signed an effort sharing agreement on emissions in these sectors, setting the binding national targets for the period until the end of 2020.
JURCOM provides regulatory compliance projects, risk assessments and audit services and software concerning carbon emissions. The CORSIA agreement, which aims at reducing carbon emissions in the aviation industry, is the specialty of JURCOM.
