The fifth instalment of the premier annual environmental markets conference is back with a stellar virtual line-up, examining how EU climate ambition weighs against the COVID-19 pandemic and why carbon is a key commodity for investors to watch over the next decade.

Carbon Forward 2020 is organised by event partners Carbon Pulse and Redshaw Advisors, with the help of Premier Publishing to bring this year’s event to an online platform.

The conference remains Europe’s largest gathering of experts dedicated to environmental markets, and this year you can attend from the comfort of your desk on Oct. 14-15.

“Carbon Forward is a well-timed opportunity to get on top of the wholesale changes to climate legislation, emissions targets, and corporate ambition expected in the 2020s,” said Redshaw Advisors’ Louis Redshaw.

  • Conference day 1 is dedicated to the world’s largest carbon market, the EU ETS. From political and regulatory developments all the way through to the latest analysts’ price forecasts, it will cover everything you need to know about how to survive and thrive under Europe’s flagship climate action programme.
  • Conference day 2 focuses on how investment portfolios and businesses can align themselves with a net zero emissions goal. Carbon Forward is gathering leading names in finance, industry, and low-carbon project development to discuss the emerging role for international carbon markets to help future-proof investment portfolios.

“Things are developing rapidly and we have put together an agenda to ensure delegates, whether from industry, finance, research, or regulatory backgrounds, can gain a clear understanding of what is changing and why it matters,” said Carbon Pulse Director and Co-Founder Ben Garside.
