ICF provides strategic technical assistance, research, evaluation, and support for the design and implementation of emissions trading systems in Asia, the European Union, and North America.
Leaders from around the world came together in April 2016 to sign the Paris Agreement, the first-ever universal, legally binding global climate deal. The agreement sets out a global action plan to put the earth on track to limit global warming to well below 2°C. The actions in the agreement will be implemented starting in 2020. ICF is supporting countries around the world as they work to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement by designing and implementing climate policies including emissions trading systems.
Since 1987, ICF has been at the forefront of preparing leading-edge climate-related technical and strategic analyses, and building real-world management tools.
