A Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM) is a government measure that aims to address carbon emissions associated with imported goods by applying carbon-related costs or tariffs to these products. It is designed to prevent carbon leakage, which occurs when businesses relocate production to countries with lower decarbonisation efforts or less stringent carbon regulations to avoid higher costs. 

As the UK prepares to introduce its own CBAM in 2027, businesses are grappling with how this will impact their operations and are urged to plan ahead accordingly. 

Participate in our online expert Q&A session on Thursday 23 May at 11 AM, where members will have the opportunity to engage with David Neilson, Associate Technical Partner at ERM, as he provides insights into the differences between the EU CBAM and UK CBAM and addresses practical implications of the UK CBAM for the wider technology sector. 

Members who are unable to attend the webinar are encouraged to send their questions ahead of time. We cannot guarantee that all questions will be answered during the session, but we will do our best to address as many as possible. Please note that questions asked live during the webinar will be prioritised for immediate response. 


techUK is in the process of drafting a response to the government’s consultation on the design and administration of a UK CBAM. Members are welcome to send their views to Weronika Dorociak ([email protected]).
