Carbon border adjustment mechanisms


The Environmental Audit Committee is launching an inquiry into carbon border adjustment mechanisms (CBAMs). The inquiry is looking at the role a CBAM could play in addressing potential carbon leakage and meeting the UK’s environmental objectives. The inquiry is also considering the wider impacts, risks and opportunities which might arise if the UK Government were to introduce its own, i.e. unilateral, CBAM.

Read the call for evidence for more detail about the inquiry.

This inquiry is no longer accepting evidence

The deadline for submissions was Monday 25 October 2021.
