CARBON EXPO, the Global Carbon Market Trade Fair & Conference, returns to Barcelona this June for the second time in its history after its first edition in Spain on 2009.
The eighth edition of the world's largest annual platform for climate and carbon finance, emissions trading and carbon abatement technologies will be held from the 1st to the 3rd of June 2011 at Fira de Barcelona’s Montjuïc venue. This edition will be jointly organized by the International Emissions Trading Association (IETA), the World Bank and Fira de Barcelona.
CARBON EXPO this year reflects the widening of interest in the carbon market and among low-carbon investors to encompass all forms of climate finance. It will look at how economic opportunities can be developed out of the green agenda, but its focus is improving the process of public money and public policy leveraging private sector money, in order to meet green growth aspirations. CARBON EXPO will chart the development of new markets, new partnerships and new opportunities and will look at the capacities and capabilities that will need to be created in developed and developing countries alike.
“Concern for the environment without concern for growth is self-defeating” says Henry Derwent, President and CEO of the International Emissions Trading Association (IETA). “Only by showing that economic growth can continue to improve people’s lives across the planet will the environmental agenda gain political force. The economic transformation to a green, low carbon, sustainable-consumption world can be as empowering as the rise of motor transport or information technology. Markets and economic incentives are needed to drive this transformation, and Carbon Expo brings market professionals and green technology specialists together”.
This year’s conference program, featuring 26 in-depth interactive workshops and 9 high level plenary sessions, will be articulated around the following key topics: Climate Financing & Investment, Energy & Low Carbon Technology, and Policies & Instruments for Climate Action. We are honored to announce the confirmed participation of Christiana Figueres, Executive Secretary of the UNFCCC as our Opening Ceremony Keynote speaker. Along her side, an impressive list of distinguished speakers from around the world will also be present to share their expertise.
Organized in parallel of the official CARBON EXPO Conference Program, Side Events will feature updates on the Carbon Markets latest products and services, including presentations, industry case studies, discussions and networking sessions, in an interactive framework. They are opened to all participants.
With over 3,000 visitors coming from 111 countries, 280 exhibitors and more than 47 CDM/JI host countries, and 115 media attending last year’s edition, CARBON EXPO has established itself as the international crossroad where the entire energy and carbon market value chain meets up.
