[Webinar] What should be an appropriate carbon price in the wake of COP26

Topic: Arguably, carbon prices are currently too low and we should be pricing carbon much more aggressively. In this webinar, James Nixon will review the existing estimates and methodologies with a view to gauging how high carbon prices might need to go in order to limit global warming in line with the Paris agreement. He will also consider some of the implications and outcomes of the recent COP26 in Glasgow.
