Navigating the American Carbon World (NACW) is the largest and most comprehensive gathering for information and discussion around climate change policy and carbon markets. Happening April 16-18 in San Francisco, NACW will take an in-depth look at California’s historic cap-and-trade program, including discussions on market structure, revenue allocation, legal issues and forecasts.

Over the last decade, Navigating the American Carbon World (NACW) has earned the distinction of being the most important carbon event in North America. It is known for convening the largest group of thought leaders, innovators, pioneers and policy makers and providing the most comprehensive analyses of pressing issues. As veterans of the conference will attest, NACW is unrivaled for firsthand information, networking and innovative discussions.
In its ninth consecutive run, NACW 2011 will be the year’s most valuable carbon event. Attendees will have the opportunity to:
* Listen to California government leaders and regulators discuss the state’s landmark climate change and energy bill, AB 32
* Discuss the status of WCI and development of its cap-and-trade program
* Get the most up-to-date information on supply and demand for allowances and offsets
* Discuss the roles of agriculture and forestry in the offset markets and learn about the nuts and bolts of offset protocols under AB 32
* Meet up with colleagues and make new contacts at the year’s best networking event
Attendees will hear and discuss fresh perspectives and ideas on these topics and others facing the carbon world. Because NACW is organized by two long-time carbon participants, the Climate Action Reserve and Point Carbon, the conference is guaranteed to present the most relevant topics and speakers.
NACW has a particularly strong reputation for delivering the most in-depth coverage of developments in California and the West. Originally established as the annual conference for the California Climate Action Registry, NACW grew in scope and scale as the Climate Action Reserve established the nation’s premier carbon offset registry and became the parent organization of the California Registry. As interest and excitement intensifies for climate policy and carbon markets, NACW will help charter the course for actions and solutions addressing climate change.
