Welcome to the European Climate Summit 2019
This IETA-led European summit, taking place on April 16th to 17th 2019 in Lisbon at the Four Seasons Hotel, with a Pre-Event day on April 15th, will bring together leading climate and energy practitioners to discuss and analyse key developments in carbon markets and emissions trading, green finance, industry decarbonisation and energy transition, and beyond.
2019 is a key year for climate action as we get closer to the “post-2020” world, which many of us have devolved and dedicated a lot of effort to help shape. While we approach the 2020 milestone, this event will be an opportunity to take stock of the main developments to date as well as discuss the next steps for climate action primarily at the European level, and internationally.
2019 also marks IETA’s 20th anniversary! So, we view this Lisbon Summit as a key opportunity to celebrate IETA’s birthday together with our members, partners and friends and, in a pure Talanoa spirit, reflect on where we – the carbon market community – are, where we need to go and how we’ll get there, inspiring our actions going forward and in hands on manner.

Welcome to Lisbon
If you’re dreaming about your next trip within Europe, come and discover Lisbon, a historical city full of stories to tell, where the sun shines 290 days a year and the temperature rarely drops below 15C.
Discover Lisbon, a city full of authenticity where old customs and ancient history intermix with cultural entertainment and hi-tech innovation. Lisbon is recognised as an alpha-level global city by the Globalization and World Cities (GaWC) because of its importance in finance, commerce, media, entertainment, arts, international trade, education and tourism. It is one of the major economic centres on the continent, with a growing financial sector and one of the largest container ports on Europe’s Atlantic coast.
Lisbon is ageless, but it loves company, as you’ll find out if you meet someone and ask them to explain, with lots of gestures and repetition, where the best place is to listen to Fado. After all, Lisbon is famous for its hospitality and the family-like way it welcomes visitors.
