On 15 March 2022, the European Council reached agreement on the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM) regulation, which is one of the key elements of the European Union’s ‘Fit for 55’ package.

To provide businesses and other countries with legal certainty and stability, the CBAM will be phased in gradually and will initially apply only to a selected number of goods at high risk of carbon leakage: iron and steel, cement, fertiliser, aluminium and electricity generation. A reporting system will apply as from 2023 for those products with the objective of facilitating a smooth roll out and to facilitate dialogue with third countries, and importers will start paying a financial adjustment in 2026.

But how with CBAM affect manufacturers and other businesses operating in Taiwan? This event will bring together government and industry experts from Europe and Taiwan to explore the various implications of CBAM for industries in Asia (see full agenda below)  and to share practical experiences and solutions for markets in Asia.

Among other topics our speakers will discuss:

  • The impact of CBAM on Taiwan’s market and manufacturing industry
  • Net zero policy & roadmap of Southeast Asian countries
  • Overview of renewable energy sourcing in Southeast Asia
  • The impact of the EU's Fit 55: Political and economic perspectives
  • Opportunities and challenges from EU ETS to EU CBAM
