During 2022, the Gold Standard will run a series of webinars to enable participants to better understand some of the key trends and issues for Article 6 operationalisation.
This webinar will cover the basics of host country authorisations under Article 6: the process, the benefits, the risks and the unknowns. It is intended to provide attendees with a better understanding of when an authorisation will be needed, the preconditions for a host country providing a letter of authorisation, and how and when this will then be translated into a corresponding adjustment.

Other upcoming events in the Article 6 Webinar Series:
From text to trade: How is Article 6 guidance being implemented on the ground?
Article 6 is notoriously difficult to understand, and while the guidance adopted at COP26 has provided much-needed clarity, it is still unclear for many how text agreed by government negotiators will be translated into action on the ground. This webinar will look at how early moving actors are applying Article 6 and making it a reality, and the lessons that can be drawn from this early experience.
The host country perspective: How governments are preparing to use Article 6
This webinar will explore how national governments are preparing to host activities under Article 6. It is intended to provide attendees with a better understanding of the processes that governments may put in place, the timing for doing so, and the factors and constraints that will inform their approach to Article 6.
Innovating under Article 6: Emerging models for public and private sector cooperation
Article 6 includes the Paris Agreement’s sole reference to the private sector, creating an important channel for private investment to tackle the climate crisis. This webinar will look at innovative models emerging across the world for private sector action enabled by government frameworks, initiatives and policies.
Valuing Article 6 credits: How the value of Article 6-authorised credits might evolve, and what this means for the market
The past few years have seen greater transparency than ever before on prices in the carbon market. But how might the market value credits authorised under Article 6, and how might this compare to unauthorised credits? This webinar will explore this question with a panel of market experts.
COP27: What happened on Article 6, and (why) does it matter?
While COP26 provides the guidance that governments and market actors need to get Article 6 activities underway, negotiators will continue their work ahead of and at COP27. This webinar will explore the outcome of COP27 negotiations, to help attendees to better understand what it means and why it matters.
Registration for these events will be available soon. More Information.
