Co-Organisers - ICAP & IETA

The International Carbon Action Partnership (ICAP)

The International Carbon Action Partnership (ICAP) is an international forum for governments and public authorities that have implemented or are planning to implement emissions trading systems (ETS).

ICAP facilitates cooperation between countries, sub-national jurisdictions and supranational institutions that have established or are actively pursuing carbon markets through mandatory cap and trade systems. 

Founded in 2007 in Lisbon, Portugal, by leaders of more than 15 governments, ICAP provides the opportunity for member jurisdictions to share best practices and discuss ETS design elements with a view to creating a well-functioning global carbon market through linking ETS.


The International Emissions Trading Association (IETA)

IETA is the voice of business on market-based climate solutions and carbon markets around the world. Established in 1999, IETA is a non-profit international business organisation. IETA's mission is to empower business to engage in climate action, advancing the objectives of the UNFCCC and the Paris Agreement as informed by IPCC science, and establish effective market-based trading systems for GHG emissions and removals that are environmentally robust, fair, open, efficient, accountable and consistent across national boundaries. IETA's members include global leaders in the electricity, oil/gas, cement, aluminium, chemical, mining, technology, standards, verification, broking, trading, legal, finance, accounting and consulting industries.
