ICROA welcomes the entry into force of the Paris Agreement. As a business association promoting proactive and ambitious action on climate stabilisation, we look forward to playing our part in its successful implementation. In the past 15 years, the voluntary market has helped raise ambition levels, mobilise private sector finance and build momentum around emissions mitigation. All of these experiences and lessons learned will prove valuable in helping to deliver the objectives of the Paris Agreement.
The entry into force of the Paris Agreement presents opportunities for increased voluntary action, and it also raises important questions for the voluntary market, due to the very different nature of the Kyoto Protocol – under which the voluntary market developed. The transition from one agreement to the other therefore raises important questions that ICROA’s work will address:
