Demystifying the COP26 deal on Article 6: Five questions, five experts

The deal on Article 6 at COP26 has generated considerable interest and confusion. Join a group of leading experts to understand the implications of the new rules governing carbon markets.

About this event

At COP26 in Glasgow, the international community finally agreed on new rules to govern carbon markets under Article 6 of the Paris Agreement. These mostly regulate trades between countries, but also have implications for voluntary offsetting by provide companies.

What are the key takeaways from these rules and how will this affect companies and countries that rely on carbon credits to meet climate targets?

In just 20 minutes, you will hear from five experts summarising one key outcome each. Afterwards, you will be able to pose your questions to the panelists.

If you are looking to get up to speed quickly on Article 6 deal, this event is for you.
