Following the successful first edition of the regional Climate Summits in 2022, the International Carbon Action Partnership (ICAP) is pleased to announce it is continuing the partnership with the International Emissions Trading Association (IETA) and other supporting partners to convene another series of regional Climate Summits in 2023.

The regional Climate Summits are a prime opportunity to bring together the carbon market and carbon pricing community in key regions of the world. They will be structured as two-day in-person events, featuring both a regional focus and an international perspective. Each Summit will also have a pre-day, featuring additional meetings and workshops.

The 2023 regional Climate Summits are scheduled as follows:

  • European Climate Summit: 28-30 March in Lisbon, Portugal – more information here
  • Latin America Climate Summit: 27-29 June in Panama City, Panama – more information available here in due course
  • North America Climate Summit: 19-21 September in New York, United States  – more information available here in due course
  • Asia-Pacific Climate Summit: 24-26 October in Tokyo, Japan – more information available here in due course

The first event in the series will be the European Climate Summit (ECS) 2023. Organised by IETA, in collaboration with ICAP, ECS 2023 is an in-person event, with some sessions in a hybrid format to allow for virtual participation. The Summit will feature high-level plenaries, workshops, and roundtables, and a central ‘Carbon Market Square’ with a networking lounge, coffee breaks, and receptions.
