GreenStream is honored having had an opportunity to co-host “China Carbon Markets dinner” with International Emissions Trading Association (IETA) on Saturday 16th November during COP19 in Warsaw, Poland. The working dinner enabled the exchange of ideas between governments and industry on the carbon markets developments in China. Some 20 high-level decision makers were invited to the dinner and we are particularly grateful for the attendance of Ms Xueman Wang of the World Bank, Mr Dirk Forriester, CEO of IETA and the Hon. Keli Hiano Kalolo, Minister of the Environment of Tokelau.

Legal Counsel Karl Upston-Hooper, who is representing GreenStream at the Climate Change Conference in Warsaw, reported that “we were humbled by the experiences of, and efforts being undertaken by, the Tokelau people that Minister Kalolo shared, and these provided context and meaning to the discussion of the Chinese carbon market – which must play a large role in meeting the 2°C target of the Durban Platform”.

The dinner continued the tradition of GreenStream hosting a China markets focused event. “We are pleased that we can provide a forum for key stakeholders to build on their earlier discussions in Durban and Doha and that these discussions are able to reflect the dynamic development of the pilot emissions trading schemes in China”, noted Mr. Upston-Hooper.

The Warsaw Climate Change Conference, opened on 11 November, has entered into its second week of negotiations, scheduled to close on 22 November.
