Public Webinar on the Value of Carbon

The NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) hosted an informational public webinar will discuss the development of a value of carbon guidance for State agencies. The webinar provided the public the opportunity to learn and ask questions.

DEC is required to establish a value of carbon for use by State agencies per Article 75 of the Environmental Conservation Law, as amended by the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA). During this webinar, staff discussed the requirements for establishing a value of carbon, how a value of carbon is estimated using both a damages and a marginal abatement approach, key considerations, and examples of how a value of carbon may be used by State agencies.

Date: Friday, July 24, 2020
Time: 1:00 - 2:00 p.m.ET
