Unpacking the "NET" in Net-Zero: Role of Markets & Removals at Scale (during the New York Climate Week)

  • 23 Sep 2020
  • Virtual Event

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.
