The Future of Carbon Markets

June 5, 2024, 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM ET
Virtual Session

Online Registration

COP28 failed to deliver the expected progress on Article 6, which is meant to support the development of global carbon markets. We continue to see a tale of two carbon markets - compliance markets continue to expand while the voluntary markets are mired in transparency and integrity issues. Failure to progress Article 6 has pushed the need to bolster market clarity back to stakeholder bi-lateral initiatives and governments. While voluntary markets remain uncertain, compliance carbon markets continue to expand, with large emitting and fast-growing countries laying groundwork for their implementation. Will the sector be able to regain momentum?  What will be the resulting levels of ambition and how much will these markets interact?  What are the synergies, challenges and opportunities ahead for integrating compliance market dynamics with voluntary market dynamics and fostering a more cohesive and effective approach to carbon mitigation?  Will COP29 complete the unfinished work on Article 6?

This event will be a virtual session via Zoom from 11:00 AM until 12:30 PM ET. Additional details will be provided to registered attendees prior to the session.
