Monday February 2nd 9:30 – 11:30
Thomson Reuters Auditorium, Dronning Eufemias gate 16, 0191 Oslo


The International Emissions Trading Association (IETA) and Thomson Reuters will give an overview of international carbon markets to date (including the Kyoto Protocol, EU ETS) and how markets will be included in the Paris UNFCCC 2015 Climate Agreement. A panel discussion will provide reactions and other views to this topic, with opportunities for interaction with the audience and networking afterwards.


Panelists will include IETA, Thomson Reuters, the Norwegian government, Stortinget members, and others TBD.


Topics to be discussed include:

  • Outcomes from the UNFCCC COP 20 in Lima and expectations for COP 21 in Paris (Dec. 2015)

Carbon Market Seminar: The Market Stability Reserve (MSR) – exploring the current state of play and the future market impact


 Date: Wed, 4 February, 2015

Time: 09.30 - 16.30
Networking drinks: 16:30 - 18:00
Location: The Dominican Hotel, Rue Léopold / Leopoldstraat 9, 1000 Brussels, Belgium


“Crunch time” for the Market Stability Reserve

  1. The next ICIS carbon seminar taking place on the 4th February 2015 in Brussels will focus on four key issues:
  2. What is the current state of play, potential policy scenarios, and timeline for the MSR legislative process?
  3. How could different MSR proposals as well as single amendments to the Commission’s proposal affect carbon prices in the short, medium and long-term?
  4. How could a reformed EU ETS affect market participants´ trading behaviour?
  5. What were the price developments since the last seminar, did they materialize as we expected, and where do we see prices in the short/medium run?


A multi-angle stakeholder discussion

To shed some light on the above questions, the seminar is inviting key MSR stakeholders across the EU political, regulatory, and market spectrum to present and participate in panel discussions under three thematic blocks:

  1. Block 1: The analyst view – setting the stage for discussion
  2. Block 2: The policy view – current legislative state of play and market impact of the MSR
  3. Block 3: The member states and market view – stakeholder dialogue on the MSR


IETA is a supporting organisation for this event. Please find the detailed agenda and instructions for the registration here.



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.
