Bloomberg for Education "In the Headlines" Webinar Series

Join the Bloomberg for Education team for a series of Spring 2022 topical webinars on a variety of topics that can be researched and tracked using Terminal functionality.

The Power of the Energy Markets: Is Carbon Emissions Trading a Climate Champion or Simply Exported Emissions?

Over the last twenty years, various leaders have endorsed a range of market-led emissions trading schemes. The 2021 Glasgow Climate Pact signed last year added urgency to this effort as 140 countries and 24 car manufacturers committed to reaching net-zero carbon dioxide emissions within this century. By allowing firms to sell their unused carbon allowances, governments have sought to reward users who reduce their emissions while providing maneuvering room to hard-to-decarbonize industries.

Join Bloomberg for Education and commodity markets specialist Elizabeth Farkas to explore how carbon credits trading works, who the players are, how you can monitor it, and what the risks are.

In this presentation, we will:
- Explore the history of carbon credits and how they operate as tradeable certificates
- Explain how companies or countries can purchase the right to emit a certain amount of carbon
- Use the terminal to find carbon contracts
- Discover how the price of carbon impacts energy products such as coal, oil, gas, power, and the environment 
- Share a takeaway assignment in which you can practice what you've learned
