potential amendments to the Cap-and-Trade Regulation related to
linkage with the Cap-and-Trade Program in Ontario, Canada, and to
continue discussing the potential for including international,
sector-based offset credits in the California Cap-and-Trade
Program. Thursday, April 28, 2016 9:30 am – 5:00 pm

Purpose of Workshop

The April 28, 2016 workshop will continue the public process to
develop potential 2016 amendments to the Cap-and-Trade Regulation
(Regulation).  ARB staff will present the regulatory and
statutory (SB 1018) linkage process as these would relate to
linkage with the Cap-and-Trade Program in Ontario, Canada. During
the workshop, staff will also continue the discussion to evaluate
the potential to include international, sector-based offset
credits issued by subnational programs designed to reduce
emissions from tropical deforestation and forest degradation
within the Cap-and-Trade Regulation.  Topics included for this
workshop would include how the linkage process would relate to
sector-based crediting programs such as the program in Acre,
Brazil, as well as potential approaches and criteria for ensuring
that robust social and environmental safeguards are included in
any sector-based crediting program ARB may consider for linkage. 

The tentative schedule for the April 28 workshop is as follows:
9:30 am – 10:30 am Discussion of Linkage Process and Requirements
for Potential Linked Partner Programs

10:30 am – 12:00 pm Focus on the Cap-and-Trade Program in

Regulation in June 2012, October 2013, April 2014, September
2014, and most recently June 2015.  ARB staff is developing staff
proposals for 2016 amendments that will seek to improve Program
efficiency and chart post-2020 implementation of the Program.
