I also reached a much deeper understanding of the global carbon markets.” Christine M Warner, Consultant, New Jersey USA “Thank you for organising such a great conference. Not only did it add such tremendous value to the attendees, but clearly it has such a positive and far-reaching impact in addressing climate change.” Marc Oppenheim, Sagana Bay Capital
