The implementation of the Paris Agreement requires from the signatory countries the creation of regulated or free carbon markets in order to accelerate the objective of decarbonising the economy. The issue of the carbon markets will need to be discussed at the COP26 in Glasgow.

The main questions to be addressed in the opinion are: what are the components of carbon markets, what are the challenges for the future and, finally, the challenges for EU industry? The opinion is expected to make a significant contribution to the current political debate within the framework of the European Green Deal.
