The article looks at the potential of linking European Union's emissions trading scheme (EU ETS) with the Carbon Pricing Mechanism of Australia (ACPM). Particular focus is given to the mechanism underlying an ETS, as well as its direct or indirect link. It points out notable differences between the EU ETS and ACPM. Some of the issues that need to be addressed are stringency, sanctions, and pricing. The key elements of the schemes are participation, penalties and allowance allocation.
