KATOWICE, 14 December - The International Emissions Trading Association and the Climate Markets and Investment Association are delighted to present the Carbon Pricing Champion Award, sponsored by ALLCOT Group and CRX, to the Secretariat of the Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition.
Our award salutes those who demonstrate true leadership by taking action and inspiring others to leverage the power of carbon pricing for the global good.
IETA CEO Dirk Forrister presents the Carbon Pricing Champion award to Angela Churie Kallhauge, head of the CPLC Secretariat.
“We’re thrilled to recognise the work of the CPLC Secretariat in supporting those jurisdictions who are committed to putting a price on carbon,” said Dirk Forrister, CEO of IETA. “The CPLC team helps bring together business and governments, environmental NGOs and academics to build momentum for carbon pricing that works."
“CPLC is a really important initiative,” said Margaret-Ann Splawn, Executive Director of CMIA. “The Secretariat’s accumulation of experience, data and knowledge is a valuable tool for the success of the Paris Agreement, as the CPLC expands the use of carbon pricing policies.”
Inaugurated in Paris in 2015, the CPLC groups 33 national and sub-national governments with more than 160 private sector companies and business groups dedicated to advancing the carbon pricing agenda.
IETA and CMIA would like to thank sponsors ALLCOT Group and Climate Resources Exchange for supporting the Carbon Pricing Champion Awards.
