2015 GHG MARKET Report

The GHG Market 2015/16 report went to press in early November, emphasising the theme of “Making Waves”.  Our vision was positive, that messages emanating from Paris in support of carbon pricing could change the world. We stand in solidarity with those in Paris and around the world, mourning the events of 13 November. We intend to redouble our support for cooperation of governments and stakeholders to prove that dialogue and diplomacy are the strongest wave of the future, not violence and terror.

IETA is pleased to release the 12th Edition of Greenhouse Gas Market Report, entitled Making Waves. 

If you have any questions about the publication, please do not hesitate to contact Katie Kouchakji (kouchakji@ieta.org).
