CO2 price of €200 for EU net zero: Shell (20.05.04 ~ 20.05.17)


“Our analysis assumes a rising carbon pricing mechanism — whether explicit or implicit — to more than €200/t CO2 equivalent (CO2e) by 2050 to deliver and sustain the emission cuts and CO2 management necessary for the EU to reach climate neutrality,” Shell said today.

This is well above the current price of allowances under the EU’s emissions trading system (ETS), which stand at around €20/t CO2e. The EU ETS requires the bloc’s power sector and parts of its heavy industry and aviation to cover GHG emissions with carbon allowances, which are procured from the market and then surrendered on an annual basis.

A strong carbon price signal would encourage investment in carbon capture, usage and storage technology, Shell said, which it views as “essential” to the EU net zero goal given that according to its calculations, some 600mn t CO2e of unavoidable emissions will still need to be removed from the atmosphere in a climate-neutral EU. This particularly applies in hard-to-abate sectors such as cement, the firm said.
