Work Package 2: Sectoral dimensions and trade issues

Description

Options for sectoral agreements in a multi-country framework will be assessed. In-depth analyses will be presented – depending on data availability – for the main energy/emission intensive sectors, such as steel, cement, electricity, and paper and pulp that are important in the Austrian economy. In addition, sector-specific issues concerning international competitiveness and carbon leakage will be analysed, including in particular border adjustments, which are the subject of widespread discussion in the EU.
