Carbon Pricing Leadership Events Calendar
April 19 - A Brookings Event: Carbon pricing and the future of global climate cooperation
On April 19, the newly-launched Cross-Brookings Initiative on Energy and Climate will host a panel discussion on the role of carbon pricing in the implementation of the Paris goals, with opening remarks from Lord Nicholas Stern of the London School of Economics and Professor Joseph Stiglitz of Columbia University, the co-chairs the High-Level Commission on Carbon Prices. They will share their thoughts on carbon pricing and other policies to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement, including the objective to hold “the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2 °C above pre-industrial levels and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels.” After the discussion, Brookings Vice President Kemal Derviş will moderate a panel discussion and take questions from the audience.

Second Annual Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition High Level Assembly
Launched at COP21 in December 2015, with the aim of catalyzing wider adoption of carbon pricing systems around the world, the Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition (CPLC) now includes more than 200 Partners, including 27 governments, 132 companies and 53 strategic partners. In the past year, the CPLC has organized over 20 Leadership Dialogues focused on identifying and addressing key challenges to pave the way for the successful use of carbon pricing to help drive clean, resilient economic growth.
The CPLC will host its second annual High-Level Assembly in Washington as part of the World Bank/IMF Spring Meetings. This session will allow leaders to take stock of global progress, identify new strategic issues—such as the link between carbon pricing , fiscal policy and climate risk—and launch the Coalition’s strategy for 2017.
During this session of the High Level Assembly, the Climate Action Peer Exchange (CAPE) Partnership, a peer-to peer exchange among Finance ministers around climate and fiscal policy, will be launched.

Internal Carbon Pricing Webinar Series
In collaboration with the Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition, partners Yale University and the World Economic Forum are hosting a series of live, interactive webcasts on Internal Carbon Pricing, featuring executives and practitioners from companies pushing the envelope on carbon pricing.
Mahindra’s carbon price is a commitment to invest in technologies and practices that reduce the company’s carbon footprint in the journey towards carbon neutrality. It supports Mahindra’s goal of doubling energy productivity by 2030 and reducing carbon emissions by 25% over the next three years. Announced in October 2016, the carbon price is already resulting in significant operational cost savings while driving innovation and alternative thinking within the business. Showcasing Mahindra’s experience marks the fourth webinar of the Internal Carbon Pricing: Practical Experiences from the Private sector series, in partnership with the World Economic Forum and the Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition.

Innovating to Meet the Climate Challenge
To deliver on the Paris Agreement on climate change reached in December 2015, the world needs action and investment on an unprecedented scale. Getting there requires innovation – in technology, policy, entrepreneurship, and financing. Breakthroughs are happening on all these fronts, driven by the private sector, international organizations, civil society and forward-looking governments.
The World Bank Group and Responding to Climate Change Limited (RTCC) are proud to host ‘Innovating to Meet the Climate Challenge,’ a half-day event looking at emerging innovations and the new opportunities they bring.
World Bank Group President Jim Yong Kim will open the event, followed by two back-to-back sessions. The first, ‘Using Carbon Pricing Revenue to Jumpstart Innovation’ will explore how revenues from carbon pricing can be used to boost productivity and innovation. The second, ‘Driving Climate Innovation in Developing Countries,’ will explore the role of the private sector in delivering future innovations at scale.
