Discover how the CBAM software CORA makes reporting your CBAM data child's play

CORA - the efficient and compliant CBAM software

In a world where sustainability has become not just a choice but a necessity, companies face the challenging task of bringing their imports in line with the strict regulations of the European Union’s Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM). CBAM is the first regulation to require product and equipment-specific emissions data from your non-European partners. In such a complex landscape of regulations, the CBAM software CORA offers you the perfect platform to structure, automatically collect & validate the necessary data for your CBAM reporting.

    FAQs on the topic of CBAM software

    CBAM is an EU initiative that was introduced as part of the European Green Deal. The aim is to create equality between EU-based companies and their international competitors by avoiding carbon leakage. This is achieved by reducing emissions from the production of imported goods and protecting European companies that invest in clean technologies.

    CBAM concerns emission-intensive goods such as cement, electricity, fertilizers, iron & steel (including pipes and structural components), and aluminium imported from outside the EU. These goods were selected due to their high carbon footprint and their importance to the EU economy.

    Almost the entire manufacturing and processing industry in the EU is affected. This affects companies that import CBAM-relevant goods, regardless of their size or the scope of their business activities. Particular attention is being paid to importers of fertilizers and electricity.

    The reporting obligation has been in force since October 1, 2023. Companies that import CBAM goods must prepare detailed reports on the direct and indirect emissions of these goods. The first report for the 4th quarter of 2023 must be submitted by January 31, 2024. The reports must contain comprehensive data, including emissions from upstream products and the energy used.

    Yes, you can use the CBAM default values, especially during the transition phase, to simplify the emission calculations for your imported goods. If you use a tool like CORA, it will automatically select the most favorable calculation method for you, so you don’t even have to think about whether you should use default values. You can find out more about CBAM default values in our blog article.

    Complying with CBAM regulations can be a challenge due to their complexity and the associated administrative burden.
