This is the first in a series of events on sustainable finance organised with the CSFI. It will focus on attempts to control the biggest contributor to the "greenhouse gas" effect - carbon dioxide.Trading in permits to emit CO2 started following the Kyoto Protocol in 1997. In the early years, the price - each carbon "credit" allows one tonne on CO2 to be emitted - struggled because too many credits were available. But between 2013 and July this year the price rose from about €5 to €30. In September IHS Markit, the data provider, created a global carbon index.Now the carbon markets can be seen not only as an incentive for companies to reduce emissions but also as a bellwether of increasing investor interest in climate change. This comes against a background of tightening regulation as policy-makers set their sights on carbon neutrality.To help us understand both the carbon markets and the climate change issue they are designed to address, we have brought together a distinguished panel, including:
