Last week, we had our second Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Webinar. This month’s webinar was dedicated to SDG 13, Climate Action and we were joined by people all over the world to hear Luca Brusa, Pedro Carvalho and Pablo Fernandez share their knowledge on this topic. Our guest speakers provided everyone with valuable and latest information on UNFCCC, the current status of climate change, climate opportunities, policy developments on carbon removal/mitigation technologies, market perspectives and trends and carbon finance. Here is a sneak peek of what we all learned:
“Unleashing the full potential of the Paris agreement will not only address climate change but help the world move forward from Covid-19.”
“The best day for climate action was yesterday but the second best day is today.”
“Its clear that we have a trend preferring carbon removal technologies and also community-based projects as opposed to the CDM era.”
“For compliance carbon markets governmental engagement is fundamental. For voluntary carbon markets the answer is not that clear – personally I feel that governments have a role to play in creating enabling conditions and facilitation to the market, but it shouldn’t intervene in the markets.”
“Compliance markets are usually markets which are reliant on a government setting up a bunch of regulatory requirements, creating a carbon price and then company’s having to pay somehow either through a carbon tax or a cap and trade scheme, also commonly known as carbon markets, to pay for carbon that they need.”
