"If you know nothing else about the Paris Agreement, you should understand that nearly 200 countries have made investment commitments that total nearly US$20 trillion in infrastructure spending"
Alexandra Tracy, Founder and President of Hoi Ping Ventures and CMIA’s Active Private Sector Observer representative
"CMIA has over the years provided thought-provoking ideas in the policy debate on the European Emissions Trading System. CMIA’s contribution to the debate was always focused on keeping the system business friendly as well as environmentally ambitious."
Mr. Peter Zapfel, Head of Unit “Emissions Trading System – Policy Development and Auctioning” in DG Climate Action, European Commission
"CMIA helped to explain the potential for project-based mechanisms across a variety of constituencies and is a key voice driving the conversation on results-based finance and sector approaches for scaling-up emission reduction investments. We urgently need input from organisations like CMIA to operationalise Art 6 of the Paris Agreement."
Mr. Franz-Josef Schafhausen, former Director General Climate Change, European and International Affairs, Federal German Ministry of the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety
"CMIA has been instrumental over the last decade in promoting the voices of the finance and investment community with climate policymakers, especially in Europe. Without CMIA’s persistent and expert advocacy, a key constituency would have been missing from the table."
Richard Folland, Managing Director, Climate & Energy Associates
