There are no immediate changes to UK participation in, and compliance with, the EU Emissions Trading System and we continue to engage in the negotiations on reforms to the System. We are considering the UK’s future participation in the EU ETS as part of delivering a wider settlement in the best interests of the UK, in consultation with business and other stakeholders.
