COP20: MARKETS MATTER, December 1-12, 2014

On behalf of the International Emissions Trading Association (IETA) and our partners, we are proud to present the COP20 IETA Side Event Program in Lima. 

The program features over 50 sessions running from the 1st of December thru to the 12th of December in the IETA Pavilion located inside the COP20 main ground, ‘The Cuartel General del Ejercito del Peru’. 

Our Pavilion is located in one of the main Country Delegation halls, together with the EU, Peru, France, China, Korea, Australia and more, next to the 2 main negotiating plenaries—an excellent location accessible to all, and for discussions on carbon markets, climate finance, and market provisions for the 2015 Agreement.   

With our friends, sister organizations and sponsors, who we deeply thank for their precious support, we offer a full range of fresh views from business about climate solutions. These are featured in sessions on all of the "hot topics" facing business here at the COP in Lima – and this year again, we make it easy to drop by for events at an on-site location.

The EU ETS: What the world’s largest emissions trading system is all about


The EU ETS: What the world’s largest emissions trading system is all about 

When: Tuesday 15 July, 16.30 - 18.00

Where: Room N3.3 Louise Weiss Building (LOW) - European Parliament, Strasbourg

The briefing, jointly organised by IETA and Eurelectric, has been an opportunity for newly-elected MEPs to understand what the world’s largest emissions trading system is all about, and why it was chosen as the preferred policy instrument for the EU to meet its climate objectives. Businesses from various sectors provided their views on why the EU ETS needs to remain the EU’s central policy instrument in the future European climate and energy package towards 2030, what challenges will need to be addressed by the new Parliament, and what developments we are seeing globally. Businesses shared their experience about why such a market-based-approach to reducing emissions is the most cost-efficient way to achieve an environmental outcome.

Please find the agenda here and a summary of the discussions here .

Representatives from various business sectors contributed, you can find selected presentations hereunder:

2-4 July 2014, Windhoek, Republic of Namibia

The 6th Africa Carbon Forum (ACF) in taking place from the 2nd to 4th of July 2014 in Windhoek, Republic of Namibia at the Safari Hotel Conference Center. This 2014 edition is jointly organized by IETA, the World Bank, the UNFCCC, the AfDB, UNEP Risoe Center, UNCTAD and the Ministry of Environment & Tourism of the Republic of Namibia. A comprehensive schedule is sure to entice policy makers, project developers and investors alike. The 2013 Africa Carbon Forum builds on the success of last year’s forum in Abidjan, Côte D’Ivoire, which brought together 707 participants from five continents to exchange views, share knowledge and learn more about the carbon markets.

Agreements reached at the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) conference in Doha have provided clear signals that carbon markets and climate finance will continue to be part of the global response to climate change. Therefore, the Africa Carbon Forum has been pivotal in connecting African project developers with foreign investors and carbon market representatives, truly engaging Africa in the global emissions trading process.
