Carbon pricing has long been recognized as a textbook economic policy response to address the externality of pollution. There are now carbon pricing mechanisms in place in around 70 national and subnational jurisdictions, and many others are heading towards implementation. However, carbon pricing alone might not be sufficient to achieve the necessary carbon reductions, and direct quantity restraints may be needed.

At the same time, the voluntary carbon market is acting as a global mechanism for offsetting carbon emissions and is set to grow significantly. Ensuring integrity in this market is an important challenge, impacting emissions reductions investments over coming decades.

In this webcast, co-sponsored by Global Association of Risk Professionals (GARP), our panelists will delve into these complex issues and explore the multifaceted solutions required. We will gain insights into carbon pricing mechanisms and the voluntary carbon market, including:

  • How successful implementations of carbon pricing have encouraged a reduction in carbon emissions;
  • Where carbon pricing has fallen short and why policies that target the supply of carbon emissions have become imperative; and
  • The interplay between the voluntary carbon markets and corporate decarbonisation, government regulation, and compliance markets.
