We are really excited to present our first Professional Education Webinar, part of a Webinar Series with DNV, called Carbon Projects 101, How Carbon Offset Projects Work.
Details are below, but we have a special promotion running, our friends at NetSuite.org have sponsored a 100 attendees to receive a discounted price of $95, a$200 savings. There are still a few left!
DNV is the largest verifier in the carbon world, verified the 1st CDM project in carbon, and the 1,000th, and literally wrote the book on what counts in carbon.
Carbon offsets are one of the largest parts of the global cap and trade market and the fight against climate change – billions of dollars a year now. And carbon trading is arguably the largest cleantech market. So Cleantech.org partnered with the biggest verifier in the Kyoto, Det Norske Veritas, to bring you the “how to” and “skinny” on carbon offset projects.
– Do you work in an energy company or technology company looking to monetize carbon reductions?
– Are you interested in buying or trading carbon, and want to understand what’s underneath?
– Have you been buying RECs and want to understand the difference?
– Are you an investor trying to sort through the carbon chaff?
– Are you a policy analyst, attorney, or consultant and have clients or bosses asking questions on how it works?
Then you should register for Cleantech.org Professional Education Online.
