46th Session of the Subsidiary Meetings

Date: May 8-17, 2017

Bonn, Germany

Hosted by: UNFCCC



Over the past few months, emissions trading systems (ETS) around the world have experienced significant volatility. The reform of the EU ETS Post-2020 is taking shape, the UK is taking its first steps towards Brexit and high-stakes elections in the Netherlands, France and Germany could change the course of the bloc in the year to come. At the same time, carbon markets in the west and east are growing: In North America a new cap and trade scheme has started in Ontario, and in Asia, China is committed to the launch of its national ETS later this year.

Join ICIS analysts for this two-day event as they provide an update on the state of play in key emissions trading schemes around the globe. They will explain recent developments and give their outlook on how regulation and markets are expected to develop.

FT Climate Finance Summit 2017

The FT Climate Finance Summit: Scaling up Finance for Climate Action will explore the vital role of international finance in global efforts to combat climate change, as well as the risks and opportunities for businesses, financial markets and investors in the new climate economy.

A ‘quiet revolution’ is already underway - the value of capital being committed to green infrastructure investments is growing, and innovations such as green bonds and internal carbon pricing are becoming part of companies’ financing tool kit. Yet despite these efforts, climate finance remains marginal to international capital flows and inadequate for global needs. 

Join a senior audience of leading green financiers, corporate decision makers, policy makers and investors to gain the bigger picture of how the full potential of the world’s capital markets can be scaled up for climate action.
