ETG's membership represents a high proportion of UK carbon emissions covered by the EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS).
The business-led ETG offers a forum for discussion and resolution of all aspects of emissions trading and enables communication to take place between commerce and industry, and the UK Government. In so doing, we contribute to Government thinking at a formative stage of policy development.
ETG supports, represents and informs UK businesses and installations covered by the UK and EU Schemes, and the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme. We attract a widely-based multi-disciplinary membership of organisations involved in the emissions trading sector extending to industrial companies, Trade Associations and service providers.
The ETG believes that certain principles should be adhered to in emissions trading schemes. These are set out in a paper on this website, together with principles governing the ETG's process - click here
