Event #105 – EU Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS) – Hosted by Watson Farley & Williams LLP

Event #105 – EU Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS) – Hosted by Watson Farley & Williams LLP

Join the SPNL and Watson Farley & Williams on Wednesday, 23 November 2022 for a discussion on the legislative proposals adopted by the European Commission targeting climate neutrality by 2050.

Only three months to go and it remains unclear who will take on the responsibility for buying European Union Allowance (EUA) (i.e. the tradable unit under the European Union Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS) which gives the holder the right to emit one tonne of carbon dioxide (CO2)).  Will charterers do so in return for lower freight rates?  Could it signal the end of tramp shipping in EU waters?

Our expert panel will share their views on this crucial topic that will significantly impact trading in Europe.


•    Nick Walker, Partner at WFW

•    Hugo Wilson, Carbon Trader at Affinity Shipping

•    Olivia Watkins, Head Cargo Analyst at VesselsValue

The panel will be moderated by Vivek Srivastava, Senior Trade Flow Analyst at VesselsValue.

The event is kindly hosted by Watson Farley & Williams at their premises in London.
