Energy Transition and Carbon Pricing (1-day workshop)

Learn about carbon pricing in decarbonizing economies

Wednesday 9 November 2022, 10:00-16:00 (CET)

Growing public and investor pressure has moved climate change further up the agenda. As a result, there is increased attention and efforts to address climate change around the world. The Paris Agreement, with its universal requirement on all countries to submit nationally determined contributions (NDCs), marks a significant change for the framework of international cooperation through carbon markets.

The low-carbon transition focuses on decarbonizing economies and supply chains. To achieve this the role and potential for carbon pricing and carbon markets will be crucial.

During this 1 day webinar style course we will deal with the key policy issues and the main trends in emissions markets such as future carbon prices and policy expectations.

Target Groups:
Professionals in a business, control or support function in the commodity and energy markets.
