IETA is proud to present its GHG Market Report for 2016/2017, entitled “Bridging the Ambition Gap: The Rise, Reach and Power of Carbon Markets.”
With the Paris Agreement entering legal force on November 4, the day after the Report’s publication, the global fight against climate change entered a new era.
From 2020 a new set of market mechanisms will take up the challenge of reducing greenhouse gas emissions at lowest cost. Our 20167/2017 report considers the lessons of the past and offers constructive support to lawmakers as they craft the markets of the future.
If you have any questions about the publication, please don’t hesitate to contact Alessandro Vitelli (firstname.lastname@example.org).
