The Climate Trust is excited to once again serve as a Supporting Organization sponsor for the premier Navigating the American Carbon World (NACW) conference this year. Senior leadership will be in attendance, with Climate Trust Executive Director, Sean Penrith, leading the breakout session, “The Future of Offsets and Their Role.” The session is scheduled for 1:15pm on Friday, April 21st.
2017 marks the 15th consecutive year NACW will bring together the most active and influential players in North American climate policy and carbon markets. Because of the number of attendees and the collaborative nature of the event, NACW serves as an outstanding opportunity for networking with colleagues from the business, government, nonprofit, and academic sectors. It is the continent’s longest running conference for discussing climate policy and carbon markets and has a well-established history of providing the most comprehensive and up-to-date information on these topics.
NACW 2017 will take place April 19-21 in San Francisco and is hosted by the Climate Action Reserve, a pioneer in carbon accounting and a trusted offset project registry.
Session topics will include U.S. and North American climate policy, international climate agreements, green investments, the current status and future growth of California’s historic cap-and-trade program, other established and emerging carbon markets, the status of the Clean Power Plan, and climate finance. The format of each session will be an interactive discussion among the panelists, guided by a moderator, with audience questions to wrap things up.
“NACW has always had a strong vibe of energy and excitement, but it’s looking like that will be magnified this year,” said Sean Penrith, Executive Director for The Climate Trust. “With significant changes and initiatives underway on federal, subnational and international levels, there’s a considerable number of issues to cover, and we are honored to help lead these discussions and to be in the company of such a strong lineup of keynote speakers,” continued Penrith.
Event speakers will include: California Senate President pro Tem Kevin de León, California State Treasurer Betty Yee, California ARB Chair Mary Nichols, NextGen Climate Founder and President Tom Steyer, and Washington Post editorial cartoonist Tom Toles.
