How AB 398 could reshape and restrict the California offset market

California’s offset program will likely see significant changes in the post-2020 period from regulatory requirements and developments in each protocol. In this session, ICIS analysts will guide you through the numbers and help you to understand what the data says about the current state of the offset market. The presentation will focus on the potential implications new rules could have on market dynamics and will conclude with a long-term outlook derived from ICIS’ new 2030 offset forecast.
