Emissions trading systems result in the creation of a market, with different traded units and a diverse array of market participants. Dynamics in this market can have unintended consequences, and some participants may even act in bad faith. To ensure its smooth functioning, the carbon market therefore calls for oversight, including rules about market access (who can participate in trading, and under what conditions), eligible units (including, where allowed, derivative financial products), transparency and information disclosure, and other aspects of trading activity.

These and other issues were addressed in this webinar, which is part of the ETS for Policy Practitioners webinar series hosted by ICAP with support from the European Commission.
