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.
