EU Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM) Advisory Services

Navigating compliance and seizing opportunities for entities affected by CBAM

The EU CBAM: More than a regulation, a transformative shift

Within the 'Fit for 55' legislative package, the European Union introduced the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM) to equalise the price of carbon paid for EU products operating under the EU Emissions Trading System (ETS) and the price of carbon paid for imported goods.

In short, companies that import goods into the EU will be obliged to report the emissions embedded in their imports and purchase CBAM certificates. This way, companies will pay the difference between the carbon price paid in the country of production and the price of carbon allowances in the EU ETS, ultimately preventing carbon leakage and promoting decarbonisation globally.
