112 The Implementation of the EU ETS Directive in the EU Member States in the Light of the German National Allocation Plan Wolf Friedrich Spieth and Martin Hamer* I. Introduction The European Union (EU) as a party to the Kyoto Protocol has made a commitment to reduce emissi- ons of greenhouse gases by 8% from the base-year 1990 to the commitment period 2008 to 2012. In order to fulfil this commitment, the EU has decided to implement a system with tradable emissions allowances, the European Union Emission Trading Scheme (EU ETS). In the light of the Kyoto Protocol's recent entry in to force, this article will outline briefly the devel- opment of the Protocol and its key provisions (11.). This will be followed by a look at the EU ETS Di- rective and, in particular, its impact on competition in Europe (IlL). The focus will be on the imple- mentation of the EU ETS Directive in Europe look- ing particularly at the German allocation model (IV). ). II. The entry into force of the Kyoto Protocol The United Nations Framework Convention on Cli- mate Change (UNFCCC) and the Kyoto Protocol provide the international framework for combating climate change.
