Session: “Environmental integrity: use of offsets”
The second meeting of the Carbon Market Policy Dialogue (CMPD) of the LIFE DICET project will bring together academia, stakeholders and senior policymakers from different carbon markets worldwide in a unique process for a fruitful exchange on carbon market integration.
The project LIFE DICET supports European Union and Member States policymakers in deepening international cooperation for the development and possible integration of carbon markets. At its core, the CMPD aims to facilitate enhanced international cooperation between Emissions Trading Systems regulators, namely the European Commission (DG Climate Action), California-Quebec, China, Switzerland and New Zealand within the framework of the LIFE DICET project.
Scheduled on Friday 9 July from 4.30 PM – 7.00 PM CET, the second session of the CMPD meeting will discuss “Environmental integrity: use of offsets”. Prior to the session, the background “ETSs with different offsets provisions: implications for linking” will be shared with the participants in order to help stir the discussions. The feedback received at this occasion will be used for the preparation of final version of the report after the meeting.
The discussion will be held under Chatham House Rules. Participation at this event is by invitation only, with representatives from the European Commission, other ETS regulators, academics, NGOs, industry, and identified international experts.
