A Global Price for Carbon Emissions - Introducing the Global Carbon Index
Over the past 10-15 years, countries around the world have begun to address the need for market mechanisms to combat climate change. It is estimated that $1.6-3.8 trillion in investment is needed to keep global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius, whereas only $463 billion is currently deployed.
As the first benchmarking and liquid investable index to track carbon credits markets globally, the IHS Markit Global Carbon Index helps to close this investment gap by creating a single price for the world's largest and most liquid carbon markets, thereby reducing barriers for investment in climate solutions and creating a new asset class for carbon.
In recognition of the index launch, we are pleased to invite you to our exclusive breakfast briefing and roundtable discussion.
The program will feature Robert Engle, recipient of the 2003 Nobel Prize in Economics, and Professor of Finance at New York University Stern School of Business. Robert's remarks will be followed by the presentation and round table discussion of the Global Carbon Index and our related white paper, A Global Price for Carbon Emissions, co-authored by Nicholas Godec, Index Product Manager, Fixed Income Indices, IHS Markit and Eron Bloomgarden, Climate Finance Partners.
Space is limited, so please register today.
