ICROA and IETA will be present in Singapore for Innovate4Climate, on June 4-7 2019. On Friday 7 June from 9:30 to 10:30, ICROA will hold a workshop on scaling voluntary action across the private sector beyond 2020, organized jointly with EcoAct and South Pole.
The workshop will highlight how the voluntary carbon market can thrive under the new architecture of the Paris Agreement. It will explore how voluntary climate action across the private sector can catalyze investments going beyond NDC pledges, to help close the ambition, finance and time gaps.
This event will be moderated by Jochen Gassner, CEO of First Climate Markets.
Speakers will include:
- Renat Heuberger, CEO, South Pole
- Mathilde Mignot, Portfolio Manager, EcoAct
- Sandeep Roy Choudhury, Head of Origination at VNV Advisory and ICROA Co-Chair
- Owen Hewlett, Chief Technical Officer, Gold Standard Foundation
The session will first highlight the growing leadership and interest from non-state actors to achieve their long term carbon neutrality goals, through the lens of project developers. It will then explore how voluntary action across the private sector can be scaled beyond 2020.
Some time will be allocated to a general discussion to ensure an interactive participation from the audience.
