The mosaic of international and domestic trading schemes related to the carbon market illustrates the potential of market-based approaches to climate change. However, debate continues in the United States, Europe, and throughout the world about whether and to what extent the forces of the marketplace can be harnessed in the interest of environmental protection. A panel of experts from government, the nonprofit sector, and academia will explore the development of environmental markets, and examine a number of market-based and economy-wide options for mitigating greenhouse gas emissions, including carbon taxes, cap and trade programs, voluntary carbon markets, and the use of renewable energy innovations. Following the discussion, there will be the opportunity to network and exchange ideas over a light lunch and wine.
