The European Union Emission Trading Scheme – Advisor: Tanya Heikkila
Students worked with European think tank, Notre Europe, to formulate possible methods of improving the European Union Emission Trading Scheme, which seeks to cut greenhouse gas emissions. Targeting allocation of allowances, monitoring and reporting, and verification as critical to the success of the Emissions Trading Scheme, they conducted research, surveys, and focused interviews to assess discrepancies in the system and provide recommendations. Recommendations included a standardized system, creating clearer procedural guidelines, and harmonizing accreditation across the EU.
