Workshop: ACCOUNTING FOR CARBON
TUESDAY 3 NOVEMBER, 2015 │ LONDON
10:00 AM – 12:40 PM │ EUROPEAN ENVIRONMENTAL MARKETS (EEM) | 1 FORE STREET
This workshop aims at giving an overview of the main results of the book ACCOUNTING FOR CARBON: Monitoring, Reporting, and Verifying Emissions in the Climate Economy recently published by Cambridge University Press. This book gathers expertise from I4CE – Institute For Climate Economics, CITEPA, INRA, South Pole Group and NPL. Based on the most recent developments in climate science and deeply-rooted economics theory, the book describes how MRV is currently practiced in the 15 most important policy frameworks – national greenhouse gas inventories supervised by the UN, the EU Emissions Trading Scheme, the Clean Development Mechanism etc. – and compares on the basis of key criteria such as scope, cost, uncertainty and flexibility.
