Market Solutions to the Climate Crisis: A Global Price for Carbon Emissions:
Monday, September 21, 2020, 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

Join our Virtual Summit and Bell Ringing with 68th Secretary of State of the United States, John Kerry, delivering the keynote speech, and remarks by Nobel Prize winning economist, Robert Engle. The event is hosted by Krane Funds Advisors, LLC, Climate Finance Partners, IHS Markit, and the New York Stock Exchange.

The earth is warming and human activities are the primary cause1. We are emitting more carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gasses (GHGs) into the atmosphere than the planet can absorb, resulting in pollution, wildfires, rising sea levels, and other natural disasters2.

Experts agree that the best way to curb pollution and save the planet is to put a price on carbon emissions3.

By combining the price-per-ton of carbon emissions from the three largest emissions trading systems in the world, investors can now allocate to the global carbon allowance market in a single ETF: the KFA Global Carbon ETF (Ticker: KRBN).
