ABOUT IETA 

The International Emissions Trading Association (IETA) is a non-profit business organisation created in June 1999 to establish a functional international framework for trading in greenhouse gas emission reductions.

Our membership includes leading international companies from across the carbon trading cycle. IETA members seek to develop an emissions trading regime that results in real and verifiable greenhouse gas emission reductions, while balancing economic efficiency with environmental integrity and social equity.



OUR 2019 PRIORITIES

As national contributions to the Paris Agreement are implemented, IETA will advocate the power of emissions markets that price carbon effectively and address climate change. We will --

 Promote use of Article 6 to form effective linkages between carbon pricing systems over time.
 Promote growth of new market initiatives around the world.
 Improve the credibility and functionality of today’s carbon markets.
 Promote carbon offsetting as a transition tool and means by which carbon markets can finance the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
 Support effective models of private sector engagement in climate finance.

Our Team

Our staff is comprised of a vast array of public policy experts and professionals.
