MEXICO CITY, 18 October – As this year’s Latin American and Caribbean Carbon Forum gets underway in Mexico City, IETA is releasing the first Spanish translations of its Emissions Trading 101 educational materials.
The Emissions Trading 101 briefings are designed to inform a broader audience and newcomers to the carbon market on aspects of market design and trading, such as allocation, auctions, offsetting and emissions monitoring. The six briefings now available in Spanish cover: Article 6 of the Paris Agreement; Cap and trade: the basics; Benefits of emissions trading; Carbon pricing and competitiveness; Monitoring, reporting and verification; and Offsets in California.
“Carbon pricing is on the rise across the world, and in particular across Latin America,” says IETA’s CEO and President Dirk Forrister. “As more nations look at emissions trading, businesses will need more resources such as IETA’s Emissions Trading 101 series to help them get to grips with the topic.”
He adds: “For a complex topic, language can be another barrier to overcome, which is why we feel it is important to have our resources available in other languages whenever possible.”
The full Emissions Trading 101 library, both in English and Spanish, is available on the IETA website.
