Status Update on RGGI and Lessons Learned on Cap and Trade

The Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) proposed improvements to its cap-and-trade program through 2030, including the post-2020 carbon market. In addition, Virginia has proposed a cap-and-trade program similar to RGGI, which could potentially be linked to the multi-state initiative. This webinar will discuss the benefits, program changes and potential expansion of RGGI.
