California’s cap-and-trade program is well into its first compliance period and it’s time to start preparing for the second compliance period, which begins January 2015. With revised regulations, an international link and expanded coverage in California, the market is likely to evolve significantly. All covered entities – particularly those covered from 2015 – face the challenge of understanding the revised rules, determining their position in the market, and developing a compliance strategy that remains effective as the market changes.
How will the second period of cap-and-trade affect your sector, your organization, and your competitors? What are emitters doing to prepare for compliance? Join us for a roundtable discussion featuring business representatives and market experts to discuss the best way to manage carbon risks in the second compliance period.
