Tuesday Afternoon Webinar: The Legal Status Of Credit Stacking


Not all habitat is created equal. Some also filters water, while some sequesters massive amounts of carbon. Yet anyone who tries to “sell” these values separately runs into a legal quagmire – one that’s the subject of a webinar Tuesday afternoon.

10 February 2014 | In their 2013 paper The Legal Status of Environmental Credit Stacking, Royal Gardner of Stetson University and Jessica Fox of the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) examined eight different credit-stacking scenarios and the emerging rules that govern the sale of credits.

Generally, they found, there is little agreement on how different federal and state agencies handle credit stacking, and these agencies have not issued clear rules on when unbundling stacked credits is permissible. The paper examines the current landscape and closes with recommendations for agencies interested in developing a credit-stacking protocol to avoid double counting and ecological loss.

On Tuesday, Garner and Fox will unbundle their own paper in a 60-minute webinar, beginning at 11am Eastern US time.

Date: February 11, 2014 Time: 1:00pm Eastern US (6pm GMT) Eastern Duration: 60 minutes
