After two years apart, the International Emissions Trading Association (IETA), the International Carbon Action Partnership (ICAP) and all the supporting organisations look forward to welcoming delegates to our flagship North America Climate Summit (NCAS) 2022 on 20-22 September, an official accredited event part of the Climate Week New York City 2022 & UN General Assembly.

The Summit, taking place at The Westin New York at Times Square, is the ideal forum to  take-stock the world’s evolving net zero landscape and clean growth opportunities. Join us in NYC to hear from policymakers, business and innovators who are leading the pack in building, scaling and collaborating on markets for net zero.

Organised by IETA in collaboration with ICAP, NACS 2022 is an in-person event with some sessions in a hybrid format to allow for virtual participation.
