Meeting G7 - Carbon Market Platform 2nd strategic dialogue, Rome, 27th-28th September 2017

Piattaforma del Mercato del Carbonio (CMP): a Roma il secondo dialogo strategico sui mercati del carbonio

Il 27 e 28 settembre, l’Italia, presidente del G7 per il 2017 e co-presidente con la Germania della CMP, ha ospitato a Villa Celimontana presso la Società Geografica Italiana, il secondo dialogo strategico sui mercati del carbonio, inteso nelle sue diverse forme: mercati tipo UE-ETS, carbon pricing, eliminazione dei sussidi alle fonti fossili. Al dialogo strategico hanno partecipato 70 esperti dai paesi del G7, da 9 paesi non-G7 e 10 Organizzazioni Internazionali, impegnati nell’utilizzo dei mercati del carbonio.

La finalità della conferenza è stata quella di facilitare il dialogo tra i Paesi in materia di mercati del carbonio, per consolidarne forma e qualità, incoraggiando le politiche nazionali e internazionali in tema di sviluppo dei mercati del carbonio, a sostegno dell’Accordo di Parigi e dell’Agenda 2030 dell’ONU sullo Sviluppo Sostenibile.

Il vertice di Bologna dei Ministri dell’Ambiente G7, riunitosi l’11 e il 12 giugno 2017, infatti dichiara: “Riconosciamo l’importante ruolo del prezzo del carbonio nell’affrontare i cambiamenti climatici, inclusi gli approcci basati sul mercato…” (secondo paragrafo “Il cambiamento climatico” punto 23).
