ABSTRACT
The article presents an analysis regarding the implications of economic crises on climate change and the importance of the European Union Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS). It states that the challenge in addressing the problems of climate change is to ensure that policy instruments including price signal from the EU ETS, incentives supporting renewable energies, and binding national caps on the non-trading sectors are enough the maintain the break between economic growth and greenhouse gas emissions. It determines that the Green New Deal programme can reconfigure investment programmes to take account of the climate change.
