Carbon Markets for Net Zero: An Era of Growth, Convergence, Innovation and Opportunity


After two years apart, we at the International Emissions Trading Association (IETA) look forward to welcoming delegates to our flagship Latin America Climate Summit (LACS) on 17-19 October 2022, an official Rio 2030 accredited event.

The Summit, taking place at The Copacabana Palace in Rio de Janeiro, is the ideal forum to take-stock of the LAC regional evolving net zero landscape and clean growth opportunities. Join us in Rio to hear from policymakers, business and innovators who are leading the pack in building, scaling and collaborating on markets for net zero.

Organised by IETA, in collaboration with ICAP, LACS 2022 is an in-person event with some sessions in a hybrid format to allow for virtual participation. The Summit features high-level plenaries, Latin America and Caribbean focused as well as cross-cutting thematic deep-dive workshops and roundtables, and a central ‘Carbon Market Square’ with Partner Sponsors display counters, a networking chill-out lounge, coffee breaks and receptions.
