ICF International will be speaking in a panel discussion at the Carbon Expo 2016 Conference in Cologne, Germany.
As part of the global effort to mobilize climate change action, finance and market solutions–following COP21 in Paris and in the lead up to COP22 in Marrakech–world leaders, governments, progressive business leaders, civil society, and other stakeholders from around the world, will gather in Cologne for the 13th edition.
ICF will participate in the panel discussion entitled “China’s National ETS: The Curtain is Rising on the World’s Largest ETS” on Friday the 27th of May, from 10:30AM - 11:30AM.
Workshop overview: China’s national ETS will officially commence in July, 2017. Its cap size will be at least twice the size of the EU ETS, making it the largest carbon market in the world by far. What will its market look like? How will be designed similarly or different from existing carbon markets? What opportunities and challenges will there be for international companies to participate? This workshop will discuss all of these questions on China’s national ETS and more.
