ICAP hosted two public webinars to accompany the launch of the 7th annual Emissions Trading Worldwide Status Report.
 
The ICAP Status Report, which was released 24 March 2020, takes a comprehensive view of ETSs in force, under development, and under consideration around the world, along with policy insights and infographics on key figures.
 
The two public webinars were timed to accommodate the global reach of the ETS community. Representatives of ETS jurisdictions shared the latest developments and future prospects from their systems, and the ICAP Secretariat offered a closer look at the key messages of the 2020 Status Report.
