IETA Greenhouse Gas Market 2014

November 2014


IETA is pleased to release the 11th Edition of Greenhouse Gas Market Report, entitled Markets Matter.
 The publication brings together carbon market professionals, policy-makers, academics and NGOs to provide in-depth analysis and perspectives on the main issues affecting carbon policy worldwide – including a scene-setter by UNFCCC Executive Secretary Christiana Figueres.

IETA is global in its outreach and the publication features latest developments and best practice in current and emerging carbon markets, as well as taking a step back to consider the wider implications of climate policy design and implementation. This year’s report is structured around three main themes where markets matter: climate finance, low-carbon technology and emissions trading.

IETA expresses its gratitude to all authors who have contributed to this publication, to the editorial committee, and all others who have worked on the publication.

IETA would also like to thank our sponsors, AEP, AitherCO2, EcoWay and EEX.

IETA's 2014 GHG Market Sentiment Survey

IETA’s annual Market Sentiment Survey finds high expectations for markets in 2015 deal

You can access the IETA'S 2014 ANNUAL MARKET SENTIMENT SURVEY HERE

COLOGNE, 28 May, 2014 – An overwhelming majority of IETA members expect carbon markets to have a role in an international climate change deal, expected to be agreed in Paris next year, according to IETA’s ninth annual Market Sentiment Survey (available here).

Over 80% of respondents to this year’s survey, conducted by PwC, expect the Paris 2015 climate agreement to pave the way for more carbon markets globally, with the potential to link them in the future. Around two-thirds of respondents (63%) believe that the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) will continue on in some form, with most of those replying think it is likely to be reformed.

COP 19 Brief

December 2013

COP 19 showed us that much more work is needed to make the links between finance and markets in order to spur private sector investment onto a 2 degrees pathway.

The 19th Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP) and the 9th Conference serving as the Meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (CMP) were held in Warsaw, from 11-22 November (although it spilled over to Saturday 23 November). This was also the 2nd official meeting of the Ad Hoc Working Group for the Durban Platform for Enhanced Action (ADP). The first week of the negotiations also saw the 39th meetings of the Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI) and Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA) convene. Both the SBI and the SBSTA continue to be technical forums to work out the details of UNFCCC architecture on issues as far ranging as market mechanisms, adaptation and REDD+.

A User Guide To Emissions Trading in China, September 2013

September 2013

This ‘User’s Guide’ to Emissions Trading in China,’ is the first attempt by IETA to take a closer look at all aspects of the pilot emissions trading systems under design and implementation in China, with a long view for the prospects of a national carbon market. We’ve provided briefings on each of the pilots in China for IETA members over the last 18 months, and this guide complements those briefings by stringing them together and understanding how they will fit into the designs of a national market and incorporate the newly-launched CCCER offset methodology.
IETA has always been a keen and active supporter of emissions trading in China. We held our first Carbon Forum Asia conference in Beijing back in 2006, and for the next 5 years we are very active voice in the growth of the CDM throughout China. In 2012, we held a workshop in Beijing where we brought +25 IETA member companies to lead discussions with Chinese companies on how emissions trading and carbon offsetting works. This workshop was the impetus for IETA to organise additional training workshops and launch in October, 2012 the “Business Partnership for Market Readiness,” or “B-PMR.”

The B-PMR got off to a strong start in 2013 with a week-long mission to the Shenzhen and Guangdong ETS pilots in China. Invited by local government leaders, the B-PMR organised a team of IETA experts from 20 companies to meet with local businesses and policymakers in southern China. We are building the B-PMR with a clear objective: to support the development of good business practices in the operation and/or design of market based instruments to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases in new jurisdictions that are developing emissions trading and carbon pricing policies. Our next Missions will take place in Seoul in September, 2013 and Shanghai in October, 2013.

This guide incorporates the information we’ve gained from the our workshop and BPMR Missions in China, and puts it together with all the publicly available official documents related to the draft rules on emissions trading in the pilots and nationally. We hope that it will continue to be a ‘living document,’ that we can update and revisit annually so that it becomes a go-to guide for anyone interested in knowing the in’s and out’s of emissions trading in China.
