IETA, the World Bank, and Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition (CPLC), are delighted to invite you to the ASIA PACIFIC Edition of the ‘Regional Carbon Pricing & Market Virtual Series’.


Date: Tuesday 1 December, 2020
Time: 8-10am Geneva / 3-5pm Singapore / 6-8pm Melbourne
Event FREE of Charge



Experience with carbon markets in Asia Pacific runs deep. Designing policies and programs to adapt to changing market dynamics over the next decade will involve taking into account emerging domestic programs as well as a new phase in international trading.

This event will provide country updates on Carbon Pricing, what are the current developments and future opportunities.  We will also dive into the business community perspective, which is necessary to developing an effective and efficient suite of low carbon incentive policies, which could include multiple types of carbon pricing instruments. Dialogue between the public and private sector as well as conversations among companies will influence how and when economies get on a downward GHG trajectory.
