ICAP convened its inaugural Masterclass on Emissions Trading in London, UK, from 12 to 17 July, 2015.

30 participants from 14 countries were selected. The Masterclass targeted individuals with previous knowledge and practical experience with emissions trading. The course relied heavily on the participants’ own expertise and experiences to encourage discussion and knowledge sharing on the latest issues in emissions trading.
Speakers included policymakers from ICAP members (representatives from the European Commission, France, Germany, and the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI)), international ETS experts (Ecologic Institute, Get2C, Ecofys, ThomsonReuters, Greenpeace, Öko-Institut, Carbon Pulse and Sandbag), as well as representatives from the financial sector and academic sector (MIT, Imperial College, LSE).
The ICAP Training Course 2015 in London was hosted by the UK Department of Energy and Climate Change and took place in Imperial College. The course was funded by the European Commission.
