ABOUT IETA

The International Emissions Trading Association (IETA) is a non-profit business organisation created in June 1999 to establish a functional international framework for trading in greenhouse gas emission reductions.

Our membership includes leading international companies from across the carbon trading cycle. IETA members seek to develop an emissions trading regime that results in real and verifiable greenhouse gas emission reductions, while balancing economic efficiency with environmental integrity and social equity.



OUR 2022 PRIORITIES

To deliver the Paris Agreement’s climate protection goals, IETA advocates the power of markets to price carbon effectively and deliver net-zero targets. We will - 

  • Seek to strengthen the credibility and functionality of today's carbon markets
  • promote accelerated growth of high-integrity voluntary markets
  • expand work on new market-based initiatives, including emissions trading systems (ETS, tax-and-offset programmes and UN FCCC carbon trading mechanisms
  • promote linked carbon pricing systems as a valuable means of channeling increased finance to the climate transition
  • convene the carbon market to build the professional community and networks that can deliver a net zero future - and herald the benefits of market cooperation in our communications.
