Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) June 6, 2008
As Congress debates the Warner Lieberman Boxer Climate bill, California has already committed to a carbon constrained economy. The Global Warming Solutions Act, AB 32 affects California industry like no other piece of environmental legislation in history. Together with Governor Schwarzenegger's Executive Order S-20-06, AB 32 requires a 35% reduction in GHG emissions by 2020 and an 80% reduction by 2050 (as compared to business as usual). Because corporate compliance with this environmental initiative can be challenging, emissions trading broker, CantorCO2e has helped design an AB 32 seminar to help organizations cope with these climate change mandates.
The AB 32 Takes Shape seminar will be held on June 17, 2008, with a 7:30AM breakfast followed by the 8:00AM - 12:30PM program. It will be held at Hunton & Williams LLP, 550 South Hope Street, Suite 2000, Los Angeles, CA 90071. The price is $75 for early registration and $125 after June 6th. AB 32 Takes Shape qualifies for 4.25 Hours of MCLE Credits.
This AB 32 seminar will cover the programmatic status and practical strategies organizations can implement to mitigate the risks associated with AB 32's requirements. It will also provide tools for creating a comprehensive carbon trading or carbon management strategy for your company, including long-term data and quality management strategies.
