WEBINAR | Understanding EU's Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM)


Media Folder: 

Dear Members and Friends,

Join us for an insightful seminar!


The China-Italy Chamber of Commerce (CICC) together with its Energy and Environment Protection Working Group (EEPWG) is glad to invite you to a webinar on the EU's innovative tool, the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM) on Wednesday, May 15th at 15:00 pm, Beijing Time (9:00 am Rome time).

The seminar aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of CBAM, its objectives, implementation phases, and impact for companies.



The EU’s Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM) is the EU's tool to put a fair price on the carbon emitted during the production of carbon intensive goods that are entering the EU, and to encourage cleaner industrial production in non-EU countries.

By confirming that a price has been paid for the embedded carbon emissions generated in the production of certain goods imported into the EU, the CBAM will ensure the carbon price of imports is equivalent to the carbon price of domestic production, and that the EU's climate objectives are not undermined. The CBAM is designed to be compatible with WTO rules.

CBAM will apply in its definitive regime from 2026, while the current transitional phase lasts between 2023 and 2026. This gradual introduction of the CBAM is aligned with the phase-out of the allocation of free allowances under the EU Emissions Trading System (ETS) to support the decarbonisation of EU industry.
