The Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism is a new instrument of the EU for preventing carbon leakage, that is, transfer of emissions to non-EU countries. The mechanism brings new obligations for importers, such as the obligation to submit reports during the transitional period and, from 2026, the obligation to purchase CBAM certificates.
