TORONTO, 18 June – Emerging economies are tapping carbon pricing to ensure clean, low-emissions development, as profiled in the third and final instalment of IETA’s Carbon Market Business Briefs.
Today’s publication of Latin American and South Africa’s briefs showcase how developing countries are turning to market forces to drive clean growth. While the briefs focus on Mexico, Colombia and South Africa, other nations in South America are exploring the use of carbon pricing for the future, including Chile, and will be added to the collection when the details are clearer.
“These briefs focus on countries where a clear price on emissions is starting to make a real impact in delivering greener development pathways,” says Dirk Forrister, President and CEO of IETA.
“Businesses are essential to ensuring these goals are met. These briefs can help business leaders become well-informed to play their part in building a clean economy.”The latest Carbon Market Business Briefs will be the subject of a webinar today at 4pm Brussels/9am Colombia, as part of the IETA Carbon Market Live series, which is free of charge with advance registration. A Spanish-language event will be held tomorrow, at the same time.
