Master’s in Public Policy
Christopher Kardish is an Advisor on the Carbon Markets and Pricing team. He specializes in the design of emissions trading systems (ETSs) through the International Carbon Action Partnership (ICAP), a global network of governments to exchange experience and expertise on implementing ETSs. His main areas of focus at ICAP and on adelphi’s other carbon pricing projects are carbon leakage, industrial decarbonisation, allowance allocation, and border carbon adjustments. Christopher is drawn to the challenges of achieving deep decarbonisation in the “hard-to-abate” sectors and the role of carbon pricing in getting there.
“The decades ahead will require changes to how we think about carbon pricing and increasing levels of cooperation across borders, but unquestionably there’s a strong role for carbon markets in reaching net-zero emissions.”
