If emissions exceed EU standards, they will have to purchase 'emissions certificates' at current carbon prices in the EU

Export enterprises face the pressure of 'carbon tax'

  (VIET NAM, 1/23/2023)

Recently, the member states of the European Union (EU) announced that they will implement the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM). Accordingly, there will be a carbon tax on all goods exported to this market based on the intensity of greenhouse gas emissions in the production process in the host country.

The EU says CBAM will initially apply to imports with a high risk of contamination such as steel, cement, fertilizer, aluminum, electricity and hydrogen. These are sectors that account for 94% of EU industrial emissions. Importers will have to report emissions contained in imported goods, if these emissions exceed EU standards, they will have to purchase "emissions certificates" at current carbon prices in the EU. It is expected that 27 EU member states will start piloting CBAM from October 2023.

Optimal choice for business 

The above policy will greatly influence the decisions of buyers, especially big brands and international business chains, when they are restructuring the global supply chain to ensure sustainability goals. Strict. However, countries that export goods to the EU that have strong policies aimed at reducing carbon emissions will be exempted from the carbon border tax. Therefore, in order for shipments not to be "taxed", greening the production process is the optimal choice for businesses.

Sharing about the benefits of green production, Ms. Nguyen Thi Lien, Deputy General Director of Phong Phu Joint Stock Company, said that the textile and garment industry belongs to the group of products that must comply with current greening standards with 75 - 96 evaluation criteria. More than 10 years ago, a series of processes were changed by businesses, from strictly managing consumption of electricity, water, emissions, and wastewater, to developing plans to reduce energy and chemical consumption each month. to gradually replace old equipment, creating a better working environment for employees. This not only helps businesses meet standards and improve their reputation with partners, but the product also increases competitiveness and has more orders, especially for high-end brands.
