Greater New York City Chapter: Pricing Carbon

Greater New York City Chapter: Pricing Carbon
This is a partnership event.

As part of #ClimateWeekNYC, IHS Markit will moderate a panel discussion featuring corporations and major investors on the state of carbon markets. IHS Markit has extended an invitation to this virtual event to WEN Greater NYC Chapter affiliates. 

Under the Paris Agreement framework, one key method to reduce carbon emissions is to put a price on carbon. The introduction of market-based instruments around the world, including the new and existing forms of interactions on carbon markets like ETS, carbon taxes, ITMOs, CORSIA, Results-based payments for REDD+, biodiversity offsetting, insetting, and others will pave the way for faster and further GHG emissions reductions. This has led to the formation of carbon as its own asset class. 

Albeit diverse, with different forms having unique risk-return profiles. The private sector involvement is critical to achieve these large transformations, but it must be accompanied by the development of technology to promote environmental integrity, transparency and consistency across carbon units, as well as tools to identify market dynamics that could affect prices and volatility in such markets.

The panel with leading market participants will discuss where the market is today, what is emerging and what is still needed.

Event Pricing: Free to members and non-members; members of other WEN chapters are welcome too!
