Taking place a few days prior to the meeting of the UN Conference of Parties at Poznan, this timely event will examine the challenges and opportunities ahead for the carbon market, and the factors that will shape the development of a post-2012 international framework for carbon. This will include an update and analysis of developments in the European Commission's review of the EU ETS, and the implications for key sector businesses in Phase III.
