ETS Human Stories

How the EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) is decarbonising Europe and benefiting people

Throughout last year the LIFE ETX consortium collaborated to tell the stories of people involved in the green transition. CMW’s Noemi Rodrigo travelled to Portugal, Greece and Belgium to discover more about how the revenues from the EU ETS can be put to good use, improving peoples’ lives and empowering the green transition. The documentaries below are the result of these trips. #MakePollutersPay
