  • Introduction

    Harnessing the Power of Collaboration

    The International Emissions Trading Association (IETA) looks forward to welcoming delegates to our flagship North America Climate Summit (NACS) 2023 on 19-21 September, an official accredited event of New York Climate Week 2023 and the UN General Assembly 2023.

    Taking place at The Westin New York at Times Square, IETA’s Summit is the ideal forum to take-stock of the world’s evolving net zero landscape and clean growth opportunities. Join us in NYC to hear from policymakers, business leaders and innovators who are leading the pack in building, scaling and collaborating on carbon pricing and markets for net zero.

    Organized by IETA, in collaboration with the International Carbon Action Partnership (ICAP), NACS 2023 is an in-person event with some hybrid sessions to enable virtual participation. The Summit features high-level plenaries, North America and cross-cutting deep-dive workshops, leadership roundtables, and a “Carbon Market Lounge” with Partner Sponsors display counters, a networking chill-out lounge, coffee breaks and receptions.
