We regularly run online events exploring different areas of our mahi.
At He Pou a Rangi Climate Change Commission, we regularly host a range of online events exploring our work and different aspects of climate science and policy. All our events are open to the public, free of charge, and recorded for later viewing.
We are excited to announce the next expert in our international speaker series, Professor Frank Jotzo – who will explore why using emissions pricing alongside other climate policies is key to setting us on a pathway to net zero emissions by 2050.
What: an open Zoom with Professor Frank Jotzo, facilitated by Commissioners Catherine Leining and Andy Reisinger
When: 12 - 1pm, Wednesday 15 June 2022
How: Register for a free ticket via Eventbrite
Join us to find out why the Emissions Trading Scheme alone won’t get us to net zero emissions – and why emissions pricing is needed alongside a portfolio of other climate policies to address climate change. Frank will give us an insight into what’s happening overseas when it comes to other climate policies. We will look at how these policies should be designed to be compatible with emissions pricing to deliver the emission reductions we need to see.
