You are invited to join a learning session to inform New York State's development of an economy-wide cap-and-invest program to reduce climate pollution, Sept. 20 during New York's Climate Week. Organized in partnership with the International Emissions Trading Association (IETA) and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, this official Climate Week side-event will take place at The Westin New York at Times Square in New York City, beginning at 1:45 PM.
Emission trading experts will discuss a variety of questions, including: What could be the benefits of linking with other existing and emerging programs? What would it take to link? What programs might make good linking partners and what considerations should officials keep in mind?
The event will build on a series of learning sessions hosted by GCC, Resources for the Future, and Columbia's Sabin Center for Climate Change Law over the summer. More than 600 people joined conversations with experts from New York, California, Washington State, Quebec, and non-profit, community-based, and academic organizations to discuss important topics related to the development of the program, including examples from other states. These webinars were all recorded and are available for viewing on the GCC website. Topics of previous session have included:
