Fuel Emissions Trading Act

On January 1st in 2021, the National Emissions Trading System (nEHS) was launched in Germany, in which all fuel distributors are obliged to participate.

Those who are affected must determine their CO2emissions, purchase a corresponding amount of CO2-certificates and submit them to the national emissions trading register of the German Emissions Trading Authority (DEHSt). This is regulated by the Fuel Emissions Trading Act (SESTA), which was adopted at the end of 2019 with the Climate Protection Package of the Federal Government.

In order to achieve the reduction targets set by the Climate Protection Package 2030, the SESTA introduces CO2 pricing of emissions, especially in the areas of heating and transport. The aim is to create economic incentives to promote the use of climate-friendly technologies, energy saving and the use of renewable energies.
