21 March 2024 Carbon Markets and Their Role in the Transition to a Climate Aligned Economy USI, Lugano

Join SSF and Università della Svizzera italiana (USI), alongside the Lugano Commodity Trading Association, on 21 March for this event focusing on the role of carbon markets in the transition to a climate aligned economy.

Carbon markets are considered an effective mechanisms for mitigating climate change and facilitating the shift towards a net-zero economy by assigning a value to greenhouse gas emissions. Despite their critical role, there remains a limited understanding of the intricacies within compliance and voluntary carbon markets. Notably, the past year witnessed a surge in critiques and challenges from both media outlets and scientists, with particular emphasis on forest carbon offsets.

The event includes a key note from Sergio Ermotti, Group CEO and President of the Executive Board of UBS Group AG. It further containsan introduction to carbon markets by Prof. Dr. Eric Nowak and presentations from industry experts (e.g. Southpole, Gold Standard). It closes with a panel discussion examining voluntary carbon markets and the role of carbon markets in the transition. The exchange between industry experts, academics and stakeholders aims to foster a frank dialogue on the present state and the future trajectory of carbon markets.
