MEE confirms responsibility for ETS

October 10, 2018 – The newly established Ministry of Ecology and Environment (MEE) published a detailed organisational plan of its Department of Climate Change (DCC), explicitly mentioning ETS as part of its responsibilities. The Division of Domestic Policy and Compliance – that now also has a second name added in brackets: Division for Carbon Emissions Trading – will continue to be in charge of the construction and the management of the national ETS. The MEE earlier this year published an organisational plan, which only listed the different departments and did not mention the national ETS. The DCC was removed from the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) and incorporated into the new MEE in the wake of the government reshuffle announced in March.
