Launched in 2005 with the aim of reducing emissions by 21% in 2020 compared to 2005 levels, the EU ETS largely dominates the global allowance market. It is the most important mechanism globally and serves as the foundation of the EU's policy for climate change, focusing on the mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions in a cost-effective manner.
The EU ETS has been successful in reflecting the macro-economic trend, with EU ETS carbon prices following a trend similar to that of commodities like oil and natural gas over the last few years.
Climate change performance varies widely across the European nations. Countries such as Sweden, Norway, Germany, France, and the UK exhibit strong performance and have achieved high rankings in 2011, in contrast to countries such as Poland and Italy that exhibited weaker performance.
