Synopsis

With the signing of the 2014 Paris Climate Agreement, we are experiencing a growing need for the structural changes of the global economy required to shift to a low-carbon economy. Regulation of carbon emissions through taxes, emissions trading schemes and fossil fuel extraction fees are expected to play a vital role in global efforts to address climate change. Central to these efforts to reduce carbon emissions is a market mechanism known as carbon pricing. It shifts the responsibility and cost of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions back to emitters and signals them to either reduce emissions or pay for them. Carbon pricing aims to align economic decisions with climate cost, incentivises clean development and innovation and drives low-carbon economic growth. 

This event aims to support corporates in:

  • Understanding the fundamentals of carbon pricing
  • Learning about direct and indirect carbon pricing instruments (e.g. carbon tax, ETSs, allowances, carbon credits…) and solutions available to organisations based on the industry and geopolitical landscape
  • Attaining a basic understanding of the risks and opportunities of carbon pricing and how to future-proof your business with low-carbon strategies
