EPISODES FROM OUR TEAM AND AFFILIATES:
North America Climate Summit 2023
At this September’s Climate Week in New York City, SmarterMarkets™ and Base Carbon partnered with IETA to interview a wide-range of carbon market participants. During this pivotal year in carbon markets, we wanted to discuss their perspectives on where we are and what we need to do next to harness the power of markets to make net-zero possible.
SmarterMarkets™ host David Greely sat down with these guests to talk about how carbon markets support their strategy for climate action; how this year’s challenges to operationalize the Article 6 markets, as well as this year’s challenges to the reputation and growth of the voluntary carbon markets, are affecting their strategies; and what they see as the most important ideas being discussed at the Climate Summit this year.
