Organizer: IETA & WBCSD

Date: Wed / Dec. 9 - 13:15

Time: 13:15

Area: Blue Zone

The Paris climate change agreement is an opportunity to set climate policy for years to come. With thousands of businesses joining the calling for carbon pricing, the Paris Agreement needs to ensure a key role for policies that putting a price on carbon. Businesses are calling on governments to cooperate on carbon pricing as it will allow greater emissions reductions to be achieved quicker and at lower cost than if every country acts on its own, while also reducing competitiveness concerns. CEO’s from across the world and from different sectors will highlight in this session the importance of carbon pricing to help address the climate challenge and why the Paris agreement must recognise this important and effective policy tool.
