California's Carbon Offset:

An Overview & Update

May 16, 2019, 11:30 to 1:30

The Screening Room at UC Irvine Applied Innovation

Join us on May 16 for an educational Lunch & Learn session that will provide an overview of the California Air Resources Board's (CARB) emissions trading program, widely known as the Cap-and-Trade Program, and examine the role of carbon offsets in the program. 

CARB continues to move forward with implementing its existing Compliance Offset Protocols and may consider additional protocol types through its public process in the future that can be utilized by California companies for a portion of their compliance with the State's stringent GHG regulations.
General sustainability initiatives and carbon-footprint reduction strategies for California businesses and organizations will also be discussed. 

Topics to be covered in this fast-paced Sustain SoCal Trending event includes:

  • Overview of the current status of Cap-and-Trade in California
  • Currently available CARB-compliant carbon offset acquisition opportunities
  • Update potential new Cap & Trade complient carbon offset opportunities
  • Voluntary carbon offset programs
  • Emissions trading program platforms, including secure international transaction platforms

There is no onsite registration for this event. Sustain SoCal's Trending...Lunch & Learn series is free for Sustain SoCal members and $30 for non-members.
