BARCELONA, 22 May – IETA is proud to present its new quarterly publication, IETA Insights.

As carbon pricing efforts ramp up around the world, spurred in part by the Paris Agreement, IETA Insights will provide a regular update on the latest developments, innovative approaches to the use of market-based mechanisms to cut emissions, and best practice solutions.

“Promoting market mechanisms remains at the core of IETA’s ethos, and IETA Insights will allow us to shine a light on key developments and new ways of using market forces to fight climate change,” says Dirk Forrister, President and CEO of IETA. “This first edition also sets out IETA’s guiding principles on carbon pricing, and why we still believe market measures are the best tool to cut emissions at lowest cost.”

Other articles in this first issue include an analysis of the legal options and obstacles for the US to exit the Paris Agreement – a move we oppose. It also offers an economic review of Canada’s national carbon pricing plans, a first-hand update on the EU ETS reform negotiations, and an update on how the aviation sector is rising to the challenge.

The next edition will be released in July. For more information or content suggestions, please contact Katie Kouchakji on press@ieta.org. For sponsorship opportunities, please contact Lisa Spafford at spafford@ieta.org.
