The innovation and behaviour shifts we're experiencing under Paris and the pandemic, bode well for a stronger and more ambitious response to the intensifying climate crisis. Despite the COVID crisis, 2020 has been a year of unexpected growth and focus on climate action, as countries grapple with the concept of a green economic recovery, even as the Paris Agreement begins operation and the global community moves inexorably towards net-zero. Under Paris and the pandemic, we are entering a new era of economic and social cooperation to tackle multiple economic, environmental and social crises. The innovation and behavioural shifts bode well for a longer-term response to the intensifying climate crisis, and many in the Australian business community as well as governments in our states and neighbouring nations are targeting net-zero emissions by 2050, seeking to manage the risks and catalyse opportunities in that transition. A variety of carbon markets are emerging globally hopefully to be boosted by progress on a rulebook for the Paris Agreement’s “Article 6” carbon market provisions at COP25. Hosted by the Carbon Market Institute, the 2020 virtual Summit will be a high profile platform to connect with customers, business peers and opinion makers; establish a presence in emerging national and international markets; and be at the forefront of this must-attend event’s knowledge exchange, commercial interaction and capacity building program.
