Complementary to our core advocacy work, IETA also runs initiatives to support carbon market development.
Through our Business Partnership for Market Readiness (B-PMR), we run peer-to-peer missions to countries where emissions trading is being planned. Supported by our members, we bring market practitioners from Europe, Canada, Australia and the US to share experiences and lessons learned with businesses in emerging markets. We have also prepared a Carbon Market Readiness Training Guide through the B-PMR. Read more about this initiative on the B-PMR page.
The International Carbon Reduction and Offset Alliance (ICROA) brings together firms offering carbon management services, to promote best practice approaches to voluntary emissions reductions. It is managed by an independent secretariat housed within IETA. For more information, visit the ICROA website.
Markets for Natural Climate Solutions is a new IETA initiative working to create global markets for carbon credits generated from Natural Climate Solutions (NCS). Its mission is to maximise private sector investment in NCS to ensure it plays the fullest role possible in delivering the goals of the Paris Agreement. For more information, visit the dedicated Markets for NCS website.
