Energy transition: CO2 levy & NL CO2 tax (In Dutch)

The energy transition is a fact and has major consequences for businesses, industries and consumer behaviour. One of the primary goals of the energy transition is the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions (also known as CO2 emissions). One of the means used to achieve this CO2 emission reduction is the pricing of CO2 emissions. In the Netherlands, a national CO2 tax has been introduced for industry starting this year. In a European context, an emission trading system (EU ETS) has been in place for over 20 years. In addition, a new mechanism is currently being introduced in this context, the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM). In this webcast we discuss the Dutch CO2 levy, possible developments of the EU ETS and CBAM and their impact on Dutch business.

In addition, we offer some practical tools, how you can deal with the consequences of the CO2 pricing / levy(s) within your organisation and what you can do to anticipate the expected (price) developments.
