Carbon Offsets & Renewable Energy Certificates Workshop

The Federal Trade Commission is hosting a public workshop, "Carbon Offsets and Renewable Energy Certificates," on January 8, 2008 in Washington DC. "The workshop will focus on consumer protection issues in these markets, such as consumer perception of carbon offset and REC advertising claims and substantiation for such claims. This workshop is one component of the Commission’s regulatory review of the Guides for the Use of Environmental Marketing Claims." Due to the increase in green advertising claims, the FTC is beginning an early regulatory review of the Guides, which have not been updated since 1998. A live webcast of the workshop will be available.
