Find recordings of all sessions from ICAP and IETA's Virtual Carbon Market Pavilion on the Pavilion website

ICAP and the International Emissions Trading Association (IETA) have partnered to organize a Carbon Markets Virtual Pavilion. Held 11-12 November 2020, the Virtual Pavilion featured a two-day program of high-level discussions, side events, and interactive sessions, along with an informal carbon markets networking arena for people to connect and stay in touch. Check out the recordings of all sessions on the Pavilion website.

The postponement of COP26 in Glasgow to November 2021 risks delaying climate negotiations but may also affect momentum of carbon pricing in recent years. IETA and ICAP want to create an opportunity to engage stakeholders from the international community and ETS jurisdictions in discussions and exchanges centered around carbon markets and priorities for carbon pricing in the years ahead.
ICAP had a number of events scheduled throughout both days of the pavilion, including side events  focused on topics such as border carbon adjustments, CORSIA, and the role of emissions trading in achieving net-zero targets, as well as interactive ‘In Conversation With’ events.
