Carbon Footprint Symposium and carbon credit trading

I attended the Carbon Footprint Symposium in Saskatoon yesterday and it was certainly a well-organized and useful event.

Dean Stinson O’Gorman from Environment Canada had a particularly interesting presentation on offset trading in Canada.

There were also numerous Saskatchewan farms in attendance interested in carbon credits generated from no-till agricultural practices on their land - which is a hot topic at the moment in the province with new legislation on GHG reduction similar to that in Alberta set to receive legislative assent in spring or summer 2010.

  1. Sorry we didn't have the chance to meet yesterday chad, but as one of the primary organizing partners I am glad you found it useful.. We at Stark & Marsh LLP feel that even though this is a topic that still requires greater levels of legislative and market metrics clarity, being informed is always a good thing. Knowing your similar interests will hopefully allow us to share insights and emerging trends related to this important topic.
