  • The impact of carbon markets: Can they incentivize emission reductions and accelerate the transition to a low-carbon economy?
  • The challenges and opportunities: What are the potential roadblocks, and how can we ensure carbon markets contribute to a just and equitable transition?
  • The future of carbon markets: What role will they play in achieving our global net-zero goals?
