Register for ACN's webinar on the role of carbon pricing in tackling climate change (24 May)

Promoting and enabling
responsible business conduct in ASEAN

After the success of the Responsible Business 101 Webinar Series,
we would like invite you to our first topical webinar:




​24 May, 3-4PM (SG time)

Carbon pricing is an increasingly popular instrument used by governments and companies to tackle climate change. Regions and countries that have implemented carbon pricing mechanisms include the EU and China. In 2017, Singapore announced that it would also be implementing a carbon tax system from 2019 - the first in the Southeast Asia region. While many have cheered this move, industries have voiced concerns about how it might affect the competitiveness of firms here. This webinar will explain the mechanisms of carbon pricing and how it is being used to tackle climate change, as well as go further in-depth by using Singapore as a case study for discussion. It will also discuss the move in light of international market mechanisms currently being developed under the Paris Agreement, which is expected to play a significant role in facilitating countries in meeting their climate goals in the coming years.

This webinar will be conducted by Ms Melissa Low, Research Fellow, Energy Studies Institute.


Melissa Low joined the Energy Studies Institute in September 2010. She holds a Master of Laws (LLM) in Climate Change Law and Policy (with distinction) from the University of Strathclyde and a Master of Science in Environmental Management from the National University of Singapore.
