California’s cap-and-trade program officially began with enforceable obligations for large industrial emitters in January 2013.   Beginning in January 2015, suppliers of transportation fuel and natural gas will be added to the program. Carbon offsets play an important role in the cap-and-trade, reducing the cost of compliance, while also driving reductions at unregulated sources. The Climate Action Reserve has played a central role in the offsets program, developing many of the standards used in the program and now accredited as an offset project registry, issuing credits that can be used for compliance. This presentation will provide an overview of the cap-and-trade program, including compliance instruments and deadlines, auction results, offset and allowance pricing, compliance strategy considerations and the role of the Climate Action Reserve.
