This session will explore why there is a growing interest from the private sector in NCS and how it can be realised. NCS could serve as a catalyst for delivering private finance to mitigation activities that help countries reduce their emissions while creating new jobs in rural areas. The session will discuss these opportunities and benefits for countries looking to adopt NCS into their carbon pricing systems. We will hear from financiers on what they are looking for to enable large scale investment and from governments on what action they are taking to incentivise and support non-state actor financing of NCS. We will conclude with thoughts on what actions can be taken forward by business and governments in partnership to further harness the private sector’s interest in NCS.

The EU is leading the charge on climate ambition, but what will the European Green Deal really look like in practice? This event will look to European officials and policy experts to guide us through the EU’s most comprehensive climate package to date. What goals will be set? What will this mean for the EU’s principal decarbonisation instrument, the EU ETS? Beyond the jargon, how might a Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism actually work? IETA’s virtual session will ask how important the Green Deal is in aiding a post-COVID-19 recovery, and tackle how the EU aims to balance decarbonisation at home with industrial competitiveness internationally.
Attempting to understand the multiple definitions and approaches to “net-zero” climate commitments can be challenging. This timely session will unpack government and corporate net-zero plans and pathways, and hone in on the crucial role that carbon markets must play to facilitate and accelerate these ambitious decarbonisation trajectories. IETA’s session will bring together business, government, and technical experts to discuss why “net zero” means different things to different people, share up-to-date research on how carbon markets can be used to enhance ambition, and examine the latest policy, financing, and corporate leadership innovations in support of Natural Climate Solutions.
