CARBON PRICING FOR A SUSTAINABLE ECONOMY: Applying Market Forces to Climate Protection in Canada

This fall, the Pembina Institute will host a national, collaborative design discussion on future carbon pricing frameworks for Canada. The conference will take place on October 29 and 30, 2007, in Calgary, Alberta.
Collaborative Design Thinking

Carbon Pricing for a Sustainable Economy will assemble leading voices for an engaging working session including:

executives and in-house experts from industry
think tanks
domestic and international specialists
policy-makers and political leaders (in an observer capacity).

Participants will have the opportunity to apply their unique experience and insights to forward-thinking policy design by discussing, vetting and reshaping a series of specific "straw dog" proposals.
Focused on Future Solutions

Federal and provincial governments have already started to lay out policies for carbon pricing. Conference participants will focus their energy and insight on design questions that build on these beginnings.

Policy proposals will be prepared through a summer research initiative, led by the Pembina Institute and guided by an Expert Advisory Committee of stakeholders.

Potential policy questions include:
When it comes to taxes versus trading, should we apply one or the other, or a combination of both?
How should our approaches to industry and consumers vary?
What does intelligent revenue recycling look like?
