Co-hosted by IETA, ICROA, South Pole & Verra and part of the London Climate Action Week - LCAW 2021
The essential role of the voluntary carbon market in reaching the goals of the Paris Agreement is now becoming widely recognised, as we have seen with the accelerated growth in 2020, and counting. At the same time, we’re witnessing a surge of institutional investors and banks that have started to align activities with net zero and goals of the Paris Agreement. Finance is critical to accelerating the transition to a low-carbon, equitable and climate-resilient economy.
Bringing together a diverse panel of leading industry, market and finance experts, this event will map-out where carbon markets and climate finance intersect; unpack their critical relationship in driving climate finance where it is most need; and reveal how they work together to decarbonize economies around the world.
