Sandbag is a not-for-profit campaign group dedicated to fighting climate change and promoting a low-carbon future.
We believe a big part of the answer lies in the cap and trade of greenhouse gas emissions and we campaign to make sure that existing and planned carbon markets live up to their potential. We shine a light on what's really going on, what's working well, and what needs to be improved. Through changes in these policies literally billions of tonnes can be prevented from entering the atmosphere - our analysis and lobbying of governments helps ensure this is what happens.
Join us in calling for tighter caps on emissions and/or take direct action to cancel carbon permits now.
EU ETS at a crossroads: recalibrating an oversupplied market to spur investments and innovation
posted by Rob on 26th Jan 2013

The European Parliament will soon vote on the European Commission’s proposal to amend the EU’s Emissions Trading Scheme(EU ETS) Directive. In order to correct the massive imbalance between supply and demand in the carbon market, the European Commission has proposed to delay the auctioning of 900 million (mln) allowances, a process called “back-­‐loading”. The Parliament and EU governments have been asked to clarify the mandate of the Commission with regards to delaying the timing of emission allowance auctions.
