Supporting the implementation of an emissions trading scheme in Ukraine

As of: September 2021

Ukraine has signed the EU Association Agreement, committing itself to the introduction of the EU Emission Trading Scheme (ETS). The project supports the Ukrainian Ministry of Environment in creating the necessary conditions to help the country achieve this commitment, while at national level, it supports the development of the necessary administrative structures and technical capacities. The partners are also supported in creating a technical foundation in the form of various emission scenarios for the determination of the emission cap. The project also promotes the development of rules and procedures for the allocation and administration of emission certificates. Technical capacity is being strengthened at the private sector level to develop monitoring plans and emission reports. The ETS is an important stimulus for the implementation of mitigation measures through the use of energy-efficient technologies.

State of implementation/results

  • On January 1, 2021, the law establishing a new monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) system came into force. The project continues to support the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Natural Resources (MEPNR) in the development of relevant secondary legislation as well as the institutional set-up of a competent authority. In particular, the project participated in the preparation of the following drafts:
    • Decree of MEPNR authorizing the "National Center for Accounting of Greenhouse Gas Emissions" (Budgetary Institution - BI) to perform its functions in the field of a monitoring, reporting and verification system of greenhouse gas emissions. The BI will provide support to the competent authority (MEPNR) in the MRV field.
    • Order of MEPNR approving the procedure for maintaining a unified registry for monitoring, reporting, and verification of greenhouse gas emissions.
    • Order of MEPNR approving the procedure for state registration of facilities in a unified registry for monitoring, reporting, and verifying greenhouse gas emissions.
  • By the end of 2021, the technical activities to establish the Data Management System (DMS) for analog-based GHG emissions will be completed. Module 1 for registration of plant operators and Module 2 for emission reporting have already been completed. As soon as the necessary legislation has been passed, the DMS will be put into operation. The relevant stakeholders will be informed in this regard. The necessary manuals for the work in these modules have already been developed and are ready for distribution.
