Carbon Market Forum (CMF)
The CEPS Carbon Market Forum - launched in December 2011 - was initially designed as a three-year programme to provide an umbrella for its carbon market-related activities. It aims to provide a neutral space, where policy-makers and regulators meet carbon-market participants and other stakeholders to discuss carbon-market regulation and general policy issues.
It is headed by Andrei Marcu, Senior Advisor at CEPS. The discussion takes place in a structured and solution-oriented way, in order to enrich the rigorous intellectual analysis, which is the contribution that CEPS brings to the debate. Thereby, the CEPS Carbon Market Forum aims to provide the underpinning for "revitalising and expanding carbon markets" through dialogue and analysis of markets and market mechanisms, including:
- international climate change policy
- linking with other markets
- international offsets and their role today and in the future
- new mechanisms
- dialogue with non-EU countries, OECD countries, emerging economies, other developing countries, OPEC, etc.
The CEPS Carbon Market Forum is open to researchers, NGOs, experts and other stakeholders, filling a gap in the institutional 'climate landscape'. It is a place where all views are welcome, ecouraged and listened to.
The keynote speaker at the inaugural meeting was Mr. Jos Delbeke, Director General, DG Climate Action, who gave a post-Durban perspective (please see presentation), together with a panel discussion involving representatives from business, civil society and the UN Secretary General's Office. The meeting was attended by over 150 people and provided a lively discussion.
