In their presentation, Catherine and Beatriz will cover the latest developments in EU climate law and policy, specifically on EU climate targets, the European Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS), the regulation of sectors not included under the EUETS and the next steps towards the energy transition in the EU.
