Environment and Climate Action

EU helps the Republic of Korea pave the way for cutting carbon emissions in Asia. For the Republic of Korea to meet its emission-reduction target of 37 % by 2030, East Asia’s first nationwide emissions trading system (ETS) established in 2015 must be implemented and operated effectively by the Korean authorities.

The EU provides regulatory and technical expertise in this area in a bid to contribute to climate change mitigation and set a successful example for other economies to follow.
