Mandatory emissions trading

We are your competent guide in questions concerning the European (EU ETS) and national (BEHG, nEHS) CO2 emissions trading.

The European CO2 emissions trading scheme has been running since 2005. Since the beginning of preparations in 2004, GALLEHR+PARTNER® has been helping German and international companies to successfully meet the challenges of European emissions trading and has established itself as a leading service provider in this field. To date, many dozens of plant operators have optimally mastered the economic challenges of emissions trading in cooperation with the experts from GALLEHR+PARTNER® or are receiving continuous support from us through our 360° CO2 service. We also provide support with our services for the newly introduced national emissions trading system, which is partly similar to the European emissions trading system and partly different.

Our emissions trading services include in particular - insofar as we are permitted to do so by legal provisions:

  • Strategic consulting and optimization
  • 1°to 360°support
  • Preparation of allocation requests, monitoring plans, allocation data reports, emission reports
  • SESTA Affected party checks, management and optimisation
  • Avoidance of double charging ETS/BEHG
  • Switch between EU ETS and SESTA
  • Other services and support (VPS backup, account opening and management support, trading support, etc.)

For legal services and/or tax advice, the provision of which is reserved for lawyers and/or tax advisors according to legal provisions, we cooperate, for example, with various law firms renowned in the energy and environmental sector, such as Köchling & Krahnefeld Rechtsanwälte, Ritter, Gent & Collegen and Hoffmann Liebs, which competently deal directly with your questions in this regard.

We will be happy to provide you with a tailor-made offer.
