Yvon Slingenberg

Yvon Slingenberg of the EU ETS discusses the potential of global emissions trading schemes. She says this is unlikely because of the lack of movement in the US, but note that systems are under consideration in Japan and Korea, that New Zealand has already put something in place and that China may introduce a system on a national level. She says the system will be significantly improved by Phase 3 in 2013. Regarding embedded carbon and aviation, she believes there is potential to influence other countries.
