The following influential figures and organisations have spoken up in support of The Carbon Price Communiqué.
Christiana Figueres, Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)
"National carbon markets system are proliferating quickly, to the point where they will soon be an effective tool to price carbon around the world. With continued political and business response, these markets will accelerate the global low emissions economy."
Eileen Claussen, President of the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions
"Climate change is no longer a prediction – it is here and now. Economic theory and practical experience demonstrate that carbon pricing is the most efficient and effective way to reduce emissions. From California to China to Australia, carbon pricing is moving forward. Business and government leaders must work together to advance this proven market-based solution worldwide."
Connie Hedegaard, European Commissioner for Climate Action
"The European experience confirms that putting a price on carbon stimulates emissions reduction. The ETS is Europe's flagship tool to meet our emission reduction target for 2020. We are planning to link our system with Australia's and encourage more countries to join the ETS family in order to drive down emissions globally."
Peter Bakker, President, WBCSD
"We are overstepping the planetary boundaries and business must act now to implement solutions that correct this. The Carbon Price Communiqué to which WBCSD has contributed is consistent with our previous publications and provides one clear direction as an opportunity for companies to engage in scaling-up solutions towards our Vision 2050."
