This event was rescheduled from the February S2 to the March S2, due to the inclement weather on 2/2/16.

What is a carbon market? How is a carbon market created and regulated? Why is a carbon market important? What is a carbon tax and how are the two distinguished? What are the intricacies and debates around cap and trade? What is Colorado doing to explore the economics of limiting carbon emissions, and the creation of a carbon market?

Experts have measured carbon emissions and their impacts on climate change for decades. And a growing number of places worldwide have implemented strategies to offset carbon emissions through an economic market that trades in carbon emissions while capping total allowable emissions. Approximately 30 percent of the world's economy is now under some form of  carbon market, with California, the EU and China leading the charge. But these discrete markets are not linked; currently, there's a focus on forging links among individual carbon markets around the world and ensuring authentic, robust implementation, and ultimately emissions reductions.    

Join us Tuesday, March 2, 2016 to learn more about carbon trading, carbon taxes, the growth in carbon markets and where Colorado stands in the carbon arena.

Presented by the Wirth Chair in Sustainable Development and Alliance for Sustainable Colorado
