The International Carbon Action Partnership will hold the event in the “ETS for Policy Practitioners Webinar Series” — “The Role of Emissions Trading in Financing the Green Transition”

Emissions trading systems have grown in recent years as a tool to finance climate change mitigation and adaptation activities, and to promote sustainable development. By setting a price on carbon emissions, they create incentives for investment in low-carbon technologies, rendering these more attractive than their fossil-based counterparts. Revenues from emissions trading are also increasingly used to fund public investment in low-carbon innovation, de-risking early-stage technologies and helping to scale up necessary mitigation options. What have we learned to date about the intersection of emissions trading and finance? How are carbon markets shaping climate-related investment? Panellists will address these questions in the upcoming instalment of the ICAP webinar series “ETS for Policy Practitioners”.
The upcoming webinar will take place on Wednesday 29th March, 14:00 – 15:30 CEST
The following experts will provide their insights:
- Soffia Alarcon-Diaz, Associate Director, Americas at Schneider Electric Sustainability Business
- Ingmar Juergens, CEO and Co-Founder at Climate & Company
Michael Mehling, Deputy Director at the Center for Energy and Environmental Policy, MIT
will be moderating the session.
