Keeping up with Environmental Markets Development 

IETA is delighted to announce the 2021Virtual Edition of our EUROPEAN CLIMATE SUMMIT, taking place December 7th and 8th 2021.

Experience with carbon markets in Europe runs deep.  It is a world leader in climate action, designing policies and programs to adapt to changing market dynamics. 2021 and beyond heralds new territory for the market with new regulations and uncertainties, links to new markets and sectors, and funds to drive green recovery, innovation and technology. This edition will look at the future of emissions trading in Europe, and aligning the EU ETS with Net-Zero.

This edition will bring together leading climate and energy practitioners, industrials, carbon traders, analysts, regulators, to discuss and analyse key developments in carbon markets and emissions trading, green recovery and finance, industry decarbonisation and energy transition. 

It offers valuable opportunities to interact with a variety of experts on how climate change is affecting their businesses, what the major challenges are and what solutions should be implemented. Discuss, debate and network with climate leaders from across the continent.
