The Carbon Market Institute is at the centre of climate change policy and business in Australia. We’re dedicated to helping business seize opportunities in rapidly evolving carbon markets. Independent and non-partisan, we’re the peak industry body for climate change and business.

We believe that market based solutions are the most efficient policy mechanism to address the challenge of climate change. We share knowledge and facilitate connections between business, policy makers and thought leaders to drive the evolution of carbon markets towards a significant and positive impact on climate change.

Engaging leaders, shaping policy and driving action, we’re connecting insights and catalysing opportunities in the transition to a low carbon economy.
