    Program Overview:

    The current state of carbon trading globally is a rapidly-changing, evolving space. While the U.S. has not yet adopted national legislation that addresses carbon trading and carbon finance measures, initiatives abroad in Europe and Canada, as well as domestic initiatives in California, are moving forward to shape the carbon trading marketplace. This Quick Teleconference will enable anyone with an interest in this space to get their finger on the pulse of the current state of the global carbon markets today.

    During this Quick Teleconference, leaders in the carbon trading industry from three countries will present their perspectives on the types of transactions occurring presently, where the market in this space is headed, and challenges currently confronting this area. Jos Cozijnsen, an emissions trading attorney in the Netherlands, will provide perspective on the state of emissions trading in the European Union, how European nations have been able to classify emissions allowances as tradable commodities, and what other nations may learn from successes and failures in the European arena. Alex Rau of Climate Wedge will provide the business-side perspective of the current state of carbon trading, including a comprehensive overview of the general trends, forms of transactions, the integration of markets in this space, and issues relating to "gaming" of the system. Patricia (Pat) Koval of Torys LLP will provide the Canadian perspective on carbon trading, including cap and trade issues impacting the Western Climate Initiative (WCI) and the Pacific Carbon Trust. Keith Casto of Shook, Hardy & Bacon will address concerns relating to carbon credits as they are impacting California, including whether credits from California will be recognized internationally, what the future for carbon trading in California looks like in the absence of federal legislation, and the more robust cap and trade system expected to be in place by January 2011.
