The use of coal has already declined in numerous countries around the world, and many have now adopted official coal phase-out targets. This session will explore how carbon pricing can contribute to coal phase-out in some countries and how it might influence plans to expand coal use in others; what the decline in coal use means for the carbon market; and what supporting policies are needed to ensure a just transition.
The event forms part of the ETS for Policy Practitioners webinar series hosted by ICAP with support from the European Commission.
