In the run-up to COP26, we’ve partnered with the City of London Corporation to unravel the impact of initiatives addressing carbon pricing and the role of financial services.
The aims of this report are to:
- provide an overview of both the EU and UK approaches to carbon pricing,
- explain how these approaches compare to other international initiatives,
- to highlight the implications of these issues for financial markets.
Carbon pricing translates “a cost applied to carbon pollution to encourage polluters to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases they emit into the atmosphere”
COP26 and beyond
