Chicago Climate Exchange
Progress Report on North America’s Only Greenhouse Reduction and Trading Program
Michael Walsh
Vice President
Chicago Climate Exchange
2:00-3:15 PM
Kellogg Center Auditorium
April 28, 2006
Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX) is the world's first and North America's only legally binding multi-sectoral, rule-based and integrated greenhouse gas emission registry, reduction and trading system.
Dr. Walsh, who earned his PhD in Economics at MSU in 1987, will talk about:
* Maximizing the benefits of emissions trading, as proven in the SO2 program, and allowing carbon pricing and trading to stimulate financing of capital improvements, maximizing entrepreneurial response and rewarding environmental innovation.
* CCX as the only available mechanism through which US based entities may engage in the integrated carbon market with a linked reduction and trading system and as a vital tool for understanding the price of carbon in today's carbon constrained-world.
