SEI is part of a team led by AEA, a global sustainability consultancy, that is providing the European Union with a comprehensive appraisal of the strengths and shortcomings of the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) and a suite of practical reform options.

We are examining systemic reforms that the EU could promote through changes in CDM governance, rules, and operation as well as unilateral demand-side” steps that the EU, as the principal market for certified emission reductions (CERs), could take to leverage change. The Centre for European Policy Studies, and CO2logic are also part of the project.
