Think tank

Sandbag Climate Campaign

London, United Kingdom

Sandbag is a campaigning NGO and think-tank dedicated to the environmental reform of the EU Emissions Trading System. Its work focuses on demonstrating the oversupply of carbon permits to the overall scheme and the means to redress this, both as a means to more affordably achieving Europe’s existing emissions reductions commitments and to bring more ambitious targets within reach. Sandbag also monitors and analyses: the surplus free allocations awarded to companies, the use of UN offsets by compliance installations, and the complementarity of the EU ETS with other EU and national policies. Finally, it uses its experience of the European cap and trade scheme to advise policymakers considering similar policies elsewhere in the world.
