The American carbon market occupies a unique position. Whilst there is a lot of activity at regional and state level, there is as of yet no federal legislation providing a clear, comprehensive framework. However as the presidential election cycle gathers pace throughout 2008, it is becoming increasingly apparent that a domestic climate plan involving a carbon market will come into force with the new president.

As the national debate on carbon management continues to grow, so does the range of challenges and opportunities that abound this market. Now in its second year, Carbon Markets USA will once again provide an excellent meeting point for new market entrants and key market players, as they examine and explore the latest market developments and ways to further accelerate market growth.

The 2007 inaugural Carbon Markets USA welcomed over 170 executives from across the US, UK, Europe and Latin America and featured high-level debate, discussion and analysis from a selection of leading players in government, industry and key associations involved in the region’s growing carbon market. This year’s event will continue to focus on in depth discussion and interactivity in order to get to the heart of the issues affecting the market.
