Each month on #Power2Think, we invite a renewable energy expert to have impactful conversations about the sustainable lifestyle. This month, our guest was Mr. Thomas Kerr, International Finance Corporation’s Climate Change Group Principal Climate Policy Officer who led an exciting conversation on the growing importance of ‘Carbon Pricing’, globally!
Tom Kerr has worked for 20 years designing and implementing public or private efforts that transform markets for resource-efficient climate business solutions. He currently leads the IFC’s private sector climate policy engagement, which involves working with emerging economy governments and major corporations to develop investor- and climate-friendly national strategies; designing coalitions to advance carbon pricing and performance standards; and providing private sector input into international policy processes such as the G20 and the United Nations climate talks.
We had the pleasure of having a very insightful dialogue in understanding the importance and as well as the rising relevance of ‘Carbon Pricing’.
Here are the highlights!
