Assessing the EU’s new emissions target and green hydrogen’s role

Outlooks & Research


The EU’s plan to make green hydrogen a key pillar of its sustainable development and emissions reduction efforts could have significant implications for carbon and the EU economy over the next 30 years, we believe. However, much depends on whether Brussels can create the right conditions for green hydrogen to displace grey hydrogen. 

Our new white paper, ‘Deep Decarbonization: Green Hydrogen, Net Zero and the Future of the EU-ETS’ examines the road to achieving the EU’s target of net zero emissions by 2050, the prospects for green hydrogen as a new clean source of energy, and the future of the EU Emissions Trading System (EU-ETS).

The value of investments and the income they generate may go down as well as up and it is possible that investors will not recover their initial outlay. Past performance is no guarantee for future returns.

Investing in emerging markets, or specialised or restricted sectors is likely to be subject to a higher-than-average volatility due to a high degree of concentration, greater uncertainty because less information is available, there is less liquidity or due to greater sensitivity to changes in market conditions (social, political and economic conditions).

Some emerging markets offer less security than the majority of international developed markets. For this reason, services for portfolio transactions, liquidation and conservation on behalf of funds invested in emerging markets may carry greater risk.
