THE CARBON MARKETS INFORMATION HUB

2 February

2024

Given the growing interest of carbon markets across a number of stakeholders, we feel there is a need to create the Hub to explain compliance and voluntary markets and their importance if net zero targets are to be achieved. The Hub will be a virtual concept which consists of five workstreams including a web-based platform with essential information to understand carbon markets. The five workstreams are:

  1. Foundation content: web-based information at hand for all stakeholders to check their understanding of carbon markets.
  2. Advocacy: coordinated briefings with policy makers, globally along with supporting materials.
  3. Media and digital: develop impactful content to promote through op-eds, paid media, and paid social channels. Increase media briefings and arrange visits to projects.
  4. Research: commission and leverage research that underscore the importance and effectiveness of carbon markets with results and data. Identify key data points from research and infuse into our messaging.
  5. Education: Develop new and promote existing educational resources to provide factual and robust information about existing, developing and new carbon markets topics.

This effort comes at a time when IETA is approaching has its 25th Anniversary in 2024. We would like to use this milestone to write IETA’s next chapter with the creation of the Hub.
