2010 CARBON SUMMIT TO TAKE PLACE
KOELNMESSE INC. AND THE CARBON MARKETS & INVESTORS ASSOCIATION (CMIA) ANNOUNCE COPENHAGEN DEBRIEF EVENT
Based on the success of the inaugural Carbon TradeEx America 2009, Koelnmesse Inc. and CMIA today announced that the organizations will once again combine talents to co-sponsor two leading-edge events in 2010.
THE CARBON MARKET EXECUTIVE SUMMIT: COPENHAGEN DEBRIEF
January 19, 2010 at the Mandarin Oriental, Washington, D.C.
This singular event is designed to assemble the leading carbon market professionals in North America. Influential policy makers, key stakeholders and global carbon market experts will offer perspectives on the implications of the Copenhagen negotiations outcomes for carbon markets and climate change policy in the United States.
The Carbon Market Executive Summit will provide both a unique networking opportunity and an executive-level discussion forum on the U.S. carbon markets in a wider international context. You can find the event details on the show website http://www.thecarbonsummit.com.
Abyd Karmali, President of CMIA and a Managing Director at Bank of America Merrill Lynch says: “We expect that the principles likely to be agreed upon in Copenhagen will provide further context for the evolving suite of U.S. domestic climate change policies. One important outcome will be even greater stimulus for the development of low-carbon technologies worldwide, in part through implementation of emissions trading approaches. CMIA member companies believe that it is vital to stay at the forefront of the results and analysis drawn from Copenhagen given the material influence of policy in shaping markets for low-carbon technologies. As such, we are excited to convene this dialogue in January next year in Washington".
CarbonTradeEx America 2010, a 2-day tradeshow and conference addressing U.S.-specific carbon market issues and practices, will take place again in the fall of 2010. Exact dates and location to be announced shortly.

Laying the right foundation for a REDD Mechanism
CMIA strongly supports the continued efforts of the international community to ensure effective action is taken to reduce emissions from forest and land use activities. Many of the proposals put forward by parties in recent months chart sensible paths by which a robust framework can be implemented to enable developing and developed countries to work together to this goal. CMIA acknowledges that text agreed at Copenhagen will only be the first step in developing and implementing a REDD mechanism. However, it is critical that the principles agreed at Copenhagen recognize and encourage the capacity of the private sector to assisting develop the tools to tackle emissions from forestry and land use activities.

The considerable shortage of competence and competent people has become one of the major challenges for the carbon market and its players.
