On April 30, 2010, more than 70 people gathered for an all-day workshop on emissions trading at Purdue University’s Discovery Park. The Purdue Climate Change Research Center (PCCRC) organized the event to provide public stakeholders from academia, government, environmental groups, and industry with the opportunity to interact in a non-partisan manner with academic and private-sector experts regarding the strengths and weaknesses of different emission trading proposals.

Below is the Emissions Trading Workshop Summary Report, which synthesizes some of the main lessons derived from the in-depth workshop discussions. You can download a PDF of the full report or of its separate sections. Following the report, you’ll find videos of the Emissions Trading Workshop presentations and downloadable PDFs of the presentation slides.
