    Article 6 of the Paris Agreement – What is it and Why is it Important for Business?

    Registrations HERE

    The science is clear – we must halve emissions by 2030 and achieve net zero emissions by 2050 if we are to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement. To date, collective action is not sufficient to put us on track to this goal and therefore increased ambition and action to curb greenhouse gas emissions is needed. One of the keys to achieving this increased ambition lies in the effective and transparent implementation of Article 6 of the Paris Agreement – the last missing puzzle piece of the Paris Agreement Rulebook to be agreed at the next UN Climate Change Conference (COP26), which will be held in Glasgow in November 2021.

    Article 6 of the Paris Agreement aims at promoting integrated, holistic and balanced approaches that will assist governments in implementing their nationally determined contributions (NDCs) – countries’ national emissions reductions targets – through voluntary international cooperation. This cooperation mechanism, if properly designed, could assist countries in raising the ambition of their NDCs and could also help to provide the policy foundation needed for the private sector to further drive investments in a sustainable and net-zero emissions economy, including through carbon pricing and emissions trading.

    These two webinars – organised by the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) and the International Emissions Trading Association (IETA) – will provide participants with an opportunity to gain a better understanding of Article 6 of the Paris Agreement and the key issues for business related to it, as well as gain insights on the progress being made on its implementation.

    This first webinar will provide an introduction to Article 6 of the Paris Agreement, explaining the background, function and goals of its provisions. It will also outline the state of play in the negotiations on Article 6, analysing the main roadblocks in the process, and it will discuss the outlook and expectations for COP26. It will do so by bringing together a panel of key Article 6 experts from different backgrounds. Presentations and panel discussion will be followed by an interactive Q&A session with the audience.

    Postponement of the COP26 in Glasgow to November 2021 following the global impact of the Covid19 crisis risks delaying climate negotiations, but may also affect the momentum for carbon pricing observed across jurisdictions in recent years. While central to any COP is negotiations between parties, pavilion and side events serve as an important platform for organizations and stakeholders to engage, share knowledge, build capacity and networks and explore policy options and other activities. COPs also provide a bridge between the broader research community with negotiators, with benefits flowing in both directions. 

    Against this backdrop, IETA and ICAP see the need for an alternative format to engage relevant stakeholders of the international community in discussions and exchanges centered around carbon markets and priorities for carbon pricing in the years ahead.

     

    Objective

    The idea of the pavilion is to replicate carbon markets side events through an online and virtual exchange platform that facilitates exchange between experts, policy makers, and negotiators across regions. The online pavilion can host webinars, panel discussions, expert talks/lectures and presentations, Q&As or interactive workshops. In similar fashion to regular COP side events, the virtual pavilion aims to serve as an informal carbon markets networking arena for people to connect and stay in touch. ICAP and IETA would together curate a program and invite partners, experts and other participants to participate in the virtual pavilion.

     

    Pavilion events

    Pavilion events will take on a range of formats. Webinars could consist of input presentations on a specific topic with a round of discussion or a Q&A with the participants afterwards. An Armchair Discussion provides a platform for invited experts to have a moderated conversation on a specific issue with an attached round of Q&A with the participants. “In conversations with” provide for a more in-depth interview style discussion between a moderator and expert. Interactive formats such as “Ask Me Anything (AMA)” provide space for participants to join a virtual room and engage in discussion with the audience on a range of issues. Virtual Workshops could serve as a platform where participants work together on a specific issue via interactive methods. Finally “open cafes” provide an informal carbon markets networking arena for people to connect and stay in touch.

    The virtual carbon markets pavilion aims to continue momentum for carbon pricing observed across jurisdictions in light of the postponement of COP26. The event will consist of a series of side events, interactive sessions, and plenary sessions, and will serve as an informal networking arena for colleagues and experts to connect and stay in touch.

    Worldwide, carbon markets play a vital role in supporting climate ambition. Amid the backdrop of COVID impacts and economic recoveries, growing attention is being paid to the promise of carbon markets to efficiently reach climate goals while simultaneously supporting other socio-economic objectives. Today's mature markets, hold years of experience. How are today's major carbon markets evolving and weathering the challenges of 2020? How are regions cooperating to strengthen market resiliency, address competitiveness concerns, and build cross-border alignment and alliances? And what's in store for emerging carbon markets?

    While governments and businesses around the world take action to respond to and recover from the COVID-19 crisis, it is a critical moment for the world to “build back better” to redesign our economies and societies to become more sustainable, resilient, and inclusive. Article 6 is an important tool for raising ambition and accelerating actions against climate crisis. Although detailed rules are still being negotiated, with a good design and cooperation between countries and other stakeholders, we can make a greater impact on both climate change and sustainable development of societies.

    Achieving net zero requires rewiring the global economy, including fundamental technological and structural change across all sectors. Whether agriculture or transport, electricity or industry, each sector faces unique challenges to decarbonize while simultaneously addressing competitiveness concerns and distributional impacts. However, driving down GHG emissions also provides opportunities, particularly around new approaches to production and consumption. This plenary will explore how sectors will need to evolve and adapt to achieve net zero targets, and how carbon pricing fits into the puzzle.

    After delays due to COVID, draft regulations for a Canadian federal offset program and Clean Fuel Standard (CFS) are slated for publication this fall. This session will assess the outlook for offset protocol development and credit demand under Canada’s complex and evolving web of carbon pricing program, as well as how the CFS may interact with these policies once launched in 2022. We will also discuss how the ultimate outcome of conservative-led provincial lawsuits challenging the legality of the federal government’s Greenhouse Gas Pollution Pricing Act could influence the CO2 pricing landscape at both the national and subnational levels going forward.

    Within the next three decades, we must transition away from a 200-year reliance on fossil fuels to net zero emissions. This will require both deep decarbonisation across all sectors of the economy as well as massive removals of emissions already existing in the atmosphere. Jurisdictions around the world continue to announce net zero targets. However, the rules, policies, and business models that will achieve net zero are still open to debate. As the final plenary of the Carbon Market Virtual Pavilion, this session features leading administrators of different, established carbon markets as well as global business visionaries to gain their perspective on what role carbon pricing can play in achieving net zero emissions.

    Building on notions and insights gained in the previous webinar, this second webinar will look at Article 6 more in detail. In particular, it will discuss research and modelling work on the environmental and economic potential of Article 6 and will review ongoing piloting efforts aimed at implementing Article 6 approaches in the real world. It will do so by bringing together a panel of key Article 6 practitioners and researchers from different backgrounds. Presentations and panel discussion will be followed by an interactive Q&A session with the audience.
