What is the Conference About?

The global carbon markets are rapidly changing. Even after the growth in the carbon markets globally last year, there is a concern on the future of the global carbon markets. The lack of clear market guidelines post 2012 are now a definite concern the Indian CER project owners.

With India being the second largest CER supplier to the world, it is absolutely essential for sellers to get their carbon revenue strategies right and to be aware of the latest developments in the global carbon policies. A sudden crash in the Voluntary Markets has already caught the Indian VER project owners unaware.
