Perspectives Climate Group is happy to announce that it has joined the Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition (CLPC) in late 2017. As a climate policy research and advisory group, we have been involved in promoting carbon pricing initiatives for fifteen years at different levels.
On the policy level, we have been heavily engaged in debates on carbon pricing under the Kyoto Protocol and later under the Paris Agreement through numerous academic and non-academic publications and participation in various international conferences, including most recently through Opens external link in new windowside events at COP23.
On a more technical level, we have been engaged in advising governments and the private sector on putting in place ambitious climate policies including carbon pricing initiatives. Specific issues related to carbon pricing that we have been working on include baselines and additionality of carbon crediting mechanisms, environmental integrity of emissions trading, carbon accounting and MRV of GHG emissions, to name only a few. We are therefore happy to join the Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition (CPLC) and further contribute to putting in place meaningful carbon prices around the world.
