Carbon Pricing to Drive Innovation and Change

Taking climate action requires policy and technological innovation. Carbon pricing provides an economic signal to emitters, who determine whether to transform their activities or pay a price. These policies help mobilize financial investments to stimulate clean technology and market innovation, and incentivize low-carbon economic growth. Convened by the Canadian Consulate, this interactive panel will bring a diversity of perspectives from industry, government, international organizations and think tanks together. They will dive into concrete examples of how carbon pricing policies are unlocking potential for low-carbon economic growth, while discussing the opportunities and challenges for advancing carbon markets internationally.
