Carbon Market Workshop

25th September 2017 @ 2:30 pm – 5:00 pm Europe/Rome Timezone
Theatre, Badia Fiesolana
Via dei Roccettini 9
San Domenico di Fiesole (Florence)


As countries move to implement their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) under the Paris Agreement, a growing number of them and of sub-national jurisdictions are considering using carbon markets to meet their mitigation commitments. The existing carbon markets already cover 9% of global emissions, and with the imminent launch of the national ETS in China, this will increase to 15%.  There is an emerging need to share the experiences on implementation of emissions trading systems to date, and to further promote emissions trading as a cost-effective climate policy tool.

This workshop will gather different stakeholders (from the academic, industry, NGO sectors) and senior policy makers from different carbon markets worldwide (California, Canada, China, EU and New Zealand), to discuss and exchange experiences in the design and implementation of emissions trading.

This event is co-organised with DG Climate Action of the European Commission, within the framework of the LIFE SIDE project. Started on 1 September and co-funded under the LIFE Programme, the project is supporting policymakers with the implementation of the EU ETS.

Participation in the workshop is by invitation only. The programme will be published in September.
